Evening visit thwarted by pub being closed for the night and a wave of closed from bar staff inside. A bank holiday Sunday too!
18 Aug 2019 (Philip Pirrip)
Evening visit until 10.30 pm close. My first visit for many a year and remember it well when run 40 years ago as the Duke of Edinburgh by an elderly couple who chalked the bar bill calculations on a cast iron pillar (the pillar is proudly still there) and used glasses "to die for". All changed now of course being a friendly entrepreneurial establishment.

Mallinsons - Electric Streams4.20GoodTaster seemed very sour, I persevered and it mellowed after a few sips of the larger measure. Slight haze
