The Sir John Oldcastle, Farringdon 2nd February 2007

Tried a few pubs in the area for a quick after-work drink but this was the only one we could find with space for three more people on a Friday night.

Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted (3.8%): Sweet, mellow and dark. Slightly hoppy and very pleasant. Not entirely convinced that the beer I was served WAS the beer I was told it was, but tasty all the same.

Itchen Valley The Sir John Oldcastle (4.5%): Unusual hoppy bitter. Served cloudy but it did eventually settle in the glass. A day or two past fresh but not quite off.

What a surprise, Weatherspoon's beer served cold! Actually it wasn't as cold as in other pubs. Maybe someone has finally got the message.

  1. Eek this pubs sends shivers down my spine! Even by Wetherspoons standards, it is fairly grim - yet it's always packed...
