The night before last night saw an excellent meal at Harry Ramsden's, which was only improved by our South African waiter (we immediately deduced he wasn't Australian, he was smiling) and a family next to us featuring a stepdad who played everyone in the family off each other all night, castigated his girlfriend's children fir being rude before taking a phonecall and was generally a complete c--t.
Yesterday, we went to a place called the Blue Pool which is a very pretty place to walk around, and at which we also successfully ate a cream tea. This was the prelude to a lazy evening, in which we ate omelette and (finally!) got to go to the pub! There were ten ales available for us to sample:
Davenports: Heatwave - smooth with bitter aftertaste. AN.
Hopback Brewery: Summer Lightning - bitter golden ale, barley, gets better as you drink, dry aftertaste. SO.
Vince Minty: Stronginthearm - smooth and hoppy. SO/AN.
Wadworth: 6X - session bitter, nutty throughout. AN.
Wadworth: Bishop's Tipple - golden ale, with a citrus taste and crisp finish. SO.
Wadworth: Henry's IPA - smooth but with citrus hints. AN.
Wadworth: Horizon - crisp with a citrus hint throughout. AN.
Wadworth: JCB - slightly bitter initially with a fruity taste. AN.
Wyre Piddle Brewery: Piddle Express - sweet, almost caramel, throughout. AN.
Young's: Kew Gold - clean bitter taste with a slightly nutty aftertaste. AN.
We are now gearing up for breakfast at a local JDW, catch you all later!
