For a change this summer, it was a very pleasant evening and even TM seemed to enjoy the bike ride through the
woods on the way from Wanborough Station to Wood Street Village.

It was a bit chilly so, of course, the early arrivals sat outside. Fortunately, Dave was inside so PV could warm
up while chatting to him about his recent trip to Nurnberg where ‘The Price of a Pint’ group followed in Mengo’s
footsteps to Enzenreuth.
It being mid-week there were only three ‘guest beers’ available along with the five regulars. Two of the guests
were from Stonehenge – the green one and a black one. PV found the Sign of Spring rather tasteless but Frank was
unwilling to swap his Dunkel, so PV had to lump it.

On the recommendation of our Farnborough resident that the pub had some ‘good guests on’ lately we paid a visit.
The guests were both from Hogs Back – Spring Ale and MajesTEA. Fortunately, the Jubilee beer was better here than
our sample at the brewery but was still too sweet for our taste. As he was up early the next day, ROC was only
going to have one but in the end stayed for another.
