Late evening visit until midnight close. Planned quicky was extended after getting into a lively conversation with a Kiwi holidaying in Europe. Old fashioned boozer, this one is run by traditional licensees.

Evening. Looks like beer is well cared for here. This pub is linked with the Stormbird across the road. Lively conversation with the barmaid about the attributes of KeyKeg beers which she feels are getting a bad press from the connotations of the word keg from past usage.
