No real ale on offer, but friendly local c. 10 minutes walk from our moorings at Hunts Lock. Opted for a pint of Mann’s Chestnut Dark Mild (Keg) which was ok, predictably dead and smooth but pleasant enough. Plenty of pub games in visible and plenty of locals – even on a Tuesday night – keeping the place alive. Apart from the lack of ale, the main downside was the dreadful music – we had to sit through the New York Empire State of Mind track repeated a few times. I guess someone bought the CD single.
