Jane and Isabel went to gawp at tourist tat in the shop opposit so I came here for a swift half. Being 11:15 am I was the only person in. I sat with my half outside the front of the pub and watched the gawping.

Situated within sight of Adnams brewery about 100yrds away this pub had a serious makeover a few years ago, it has changed from a cosy local boozer to a spotlight and chrome modern looking place sometimes known as the soul less. Can't fault the beers though and it is always busy.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Adnams - Southwold Bitter3.70GoodA nice enough pint but without the freshness I have come to expect localy.
Adnams - East Green4.00GoodVery pale and refreshing, citrusy with a bit of grass, verging on the bland?
