Evening visit. Becoming increasingly busy in the run up to a set by a rock covers band. Lots of hair, denim and leather on view. Unfortunately I had to leave before they started.

We settled in here after rejecting the Shakespeare and the Riverside as being too crowded. As ever, there is a good beer range and true to form I select the one with the hoppiest name. Then off to the Caribbean take-away on Wicker Lane.
