First ones in at noon. We had visited the Castle (the real one) and walked around this buzzing market town. It is an interesting building with great history and a prime location. However it felt very corporate and rather soulless. The beer choice was rather boring. We sat in the sunshine and looked down on the canal.
Black Sheep - Best Bitter3.80GoodFirst one out today no doubt - but fresh and lively. I rather enjoyed a pint in a dimpled jug for the first time in ages. (A straight sleeve is my glass of choice.)
