Mid day visit. I listened to someone telling people that we won't have to put the clocks back and forward by one hour once we are out of Europe.

People drifting in and out, my friend dashed off for a train, and suddenly I was the only customer.
Polly's - Columbus Peppercorn5.60ExcellentFrom a keg. In a Belgian Saison style. Cloudy gold. Pepper immediately obvious. Hops more subtle.
3 Brewers of St. Albans - Copper3.90PoorFlat and insipid. Not a good advert for cask beer.
Colchester - Double Drop Braggot4.00Not Tried

Afternoon visit, one person talking very loudly at the bar so I sat in a small room at the side but could still hear this person going on and on in the other part of the pub. I decided to move on after one pint.
Summer Wine (SWB) - Stateside4.30Good
Mallinsons - Wolf3.80Not Tried
Mallinsons - Cliff Edge4.10Not Tried

Mid afternoon our group were the only customers but this soon changed with a few others arriving during our short stay. Friendly welcome from the knowledgeable barman. We took over the comfy middle eastern style furnished room at the rear of the pub, a complete contrast compared to the basic main bar area.
Summer Wine (SWB) - Stateside4.30GoodA rather earthy yet flavoursome APA style ale in good condition and temperature
Mallinsons - Cliff Edge4.10AcceptableLifeless, warm and lacking condition with a sour twang.
