The Jolly Boatman, Newhaven 16th September 2007

Harvey’s Sussex Best Bitter (4.0%): Tastes a bit metallic and only slightly like it should.

This small, town pub was busy and full of loud people. The man behind the bar was enthusiastic and told us we had to come back, which was friendlier than in a lot of places, and the drunken customers I talked to were jovial. It was a shame that the beer let it down.

  1. Harveys is always variable wherever you go. Ruth should have tried the three guest ales, which are always good and sometimes superb. The "man behind the bar" is the reason I'vr been coming back every week for 3 years! It is in fact the best beer this side of the Evening Star.
