The Wheatsheaf, Bognor Regis 27th March 2007

Went to Bognor for a family meal at the Wheatsheaf.

The beers on offer were decidedly northern, as was the landlord's accent.

Bass Draft Bass (4.4%): Currently brewed by Marston's, this had a lovely golden colour but tasted a little flat.

Tetley Cask Bitter (3.6%): Marginally better than the Bass with a caramel flavour. Better than the smooth version we've come to know and hate.

It was interesting to taste these northern beers but I'm not totally convinced now that mass production has taken its toll. It would be interesting to do a taste test as it may be my preconceptions coming into play.

The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was cheap and plentiful. The TV screens were showing the cricket but it wasn't too intrusive and there were a lot of locals in residence.
