Halfway House

One of the nicest little independent pubs I've been to, well worth a visit.  It has a real welcoming atmosphere and with all the evening events going on, it's anything but a stale hangout for musty old men.  Live music, open mic night, curry night.  If they don't do the old fashioned meat auction on a Sunday, they so should.
Being a Tuesday, we had a go at the quiz.  A quid to gain entry, the usual picture round followed by a few questions on varying subjects and general knowledge.  Quite nice they gave us a helping hand and included an idiot round for the likes of us, or we may not have got any right.  But I think we faired okay.
There are some good ales on tap, so good in fact the barman poured a London Pride when I ordered a Fosters.  Perhaps it was his way of saying 'drink some real beer you whipper snapper', and who am I to argue.
The owners have put a lot of effort into making this a good local and it really shows.  Good stuff.
