    somewhat recovered at this point. I would love to drop by but I have booked an appointment elsewhere.

    if I'm still alive tomorrow I may drop in for a bit.

    Thanks for the pint, Landlord! That was lovely. I love the Apples & Pears and the Strawberry one.

    As my husband left for football this lunchtime, I ventured the suggestion that if he found himself at the cider bar post-match, he should bring me home some deloicious Rum Cask. And lo: image.jpg

    Thanks to everyone who's popped in for a pint, great to see you all :)

    Just realised when I posted the pint winners from my phone, they never appeared on here, so here they are again, picked scientifically by a dribbling baby hatter:

    yay! I never win anything ! :D
    Did pop in have a quick half of mulled last night - and lovely it was too.
    Because I'm new and a bit shy I didn't recognise any of you noisy people. Tonight is the last chance to collect my prize ? :confused:

    I stopped for one rum thing. It's that special type of strong cider that doesn't make you feel drunk, it makes you feel unusual. Very nice, thanks Brixton Hatter

    ViolentPanda Hardly getting over it.

    Once baby hatter comes of age, I shall return the favour, and this dribbling old fart will by them a drink!

    Greebo got a couple of different rum cask strong beers last year (Innis & Gun) which had much the same effect, and smelled very much like my late foster-dad's home-made Chrimbo cake.

    Yep, tonight is the last chance. If you see a beardy grey-haired fat bloke with a walking stick there, that'll probably be me. :)

    Had a lovely pint of Guildford Dancing Juice, followed by a pint of Red Hen. Most excellent ciderage!

    Mr Hatter thank you again for the excellant cider and lovely company in your establishment. If you do it again please do let us all know. I regret I wasn't organised enough to buy carry out.
