2004 Round the World
18th December


Venue Address Comment Beer ABV Price
The Albion 134 High Street A comfortable a warm pub with a pleasant
atmosphere. Two real ales, including Black
Sheep Best Bitter
Budweiser Budvar 5.0 1.99
Marquis of Granby 4 West Street Pub was empty, but from the loud music and
layout it is obviously a young persons place
which comes into it's own latter.
Corona 4.6 2.65
The Assembly Rooms 147-153 High Street A typical J. D. Wetherspoons conversion. Very busy
and rightly so given the service, selection and prices.
The De Koninck had been especially casked for the
chain and was less gassed as a result.
De Koninck 5.1 0.85
- - - Paulaner Oktoberfest 5.6 1.09
- - - Kozel 5.0 1.69

We tried a couple of others (The Old Bank and The Vestry) but they had nothing unusual to offer us and so we moved on.

The Rising Sun 14 Heathcote Road An exceptional pub tied to Pilgrim for it's draught real
ale but which carries a large range of foreign beers.
We managed to arrive when they were holding their
foreign winter beer festival. All beers were draught
except the Kolsch.
Riegele Augustus 8.0 2.80
- - - Riegele Privat 5.2 1.50
- - - Dupont Bons Voeux 9.5 3.30

We just had time to call back to The Assembly Rooms for one more before the train home. Could have had two as the 5.17 was cancelled.
