Sorry, Gambo, but there's another delicious stout on the bar :





That's not a short pint, by the way, it's a pint I couldn't resist trying before I took the pic.
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

Terrible news! The Quarterstaff is finished.

Great news! This is on instead......





It's lighter in body compared to a stout but it's super full of dark flavour.

Just me.

Actually there are probably half a dozen to a dozen regulars who go for the hand-pull ales rather than the likes of Carling and John Smiths.

And the place attracts a few occasional drinkers who drop in and knock a couple back.

But (and this "but" is the important bit) the landlady likes to offer proper beer, her son loves his ales and runs the cellar, they don't buy huge volumes so the turnaround is frequent and they both have excellent relationships with the customers (who actually have a say about which beers which are bought in (for example; they know I like dark beers and don't like hoppy muck so I get asked what I'd like to try if I'm around when they're putting the orders together)).

I'll be honest, I've never known a pub like it for the way ALL customers are made to feel welcome by the staff AND the other customers. If you were to be a complete stranger and were to visit the pub three times and sit at the bar, by the third visit you'd be on first name terms with the landlandy, her son, the bar staff and 50% of the (many) regulars. It's the friendliest boozer I've ever been in.

Sounds cracking. 8)

The boozer I frequent is very friendly, and most of the staff and customers are on first name terms too.......but there is only about for of us who regularly drink ale, so Doom Bar is bought in specifically for us....but as for other guest ales, it doesn't happen because it goes off before it's sold. :(
