Comment

Although they had held a festival a couple of years ago we had missed
it and this was a new venue for us. Somewhat difficult to get to by
public transport, Ray and Frank cycled whilst the rest of us relied
on Kevin’s generosity to drive there.
There were 23 beers to choose from, eight in the pub with the
remainder in a tent in the courtyard along with some undercover
seating. Just as well, as it was a Bank Holiday and therefore rain
was to be expected and duly arrived. A Hog Roast and burgers had also
been laid on and went down well with the couple of Rambler’s Groups
which meandered through. A bouncing castle and coconut shy were
provided in the field behind for the children. Surprised Kevin did
not have a go, after all he had Lucky with him.
There was no charge for glasses and the beer cost either £2.70 a pint
for the lower strengths or £2.90 for anything above 4.5% ABV. All
beers tried were in good condition even if not to everyone’s taste.

The beers tried by most were:-
