another one bites the dust

A ghostly pub in it's feel and appearance.all by itself here along the Highway.
Within it was quiet and clean. And the girl behind the bar was pleasant enough.
The only Bitter on service was London Pride at 3, the Young's was off I was told.
To be truthful, my main reason for going into the place was to use the toilet and then have a ten minute sit down and rest from the freezing sleet falling outside. On tasting it, I found it to be vinegar.
It's apart of the world that I can honestly say that I shall never ever venture to by desire or accident. And looking at the overwhelming presence in the neighbourhood of 3rd worlders doing their level best to create a 3rd world level to this part of London; it's a wasteland to avoid.

Basic pub with no redeeming features. Wasn't really worth the trip to this part of the world.

This is a pretty straightforward and ordinary little one-room corner pub. Pride and Youngs bitter on the Pride didnt look or taste anything like Pride; more like Deuchars IPA but tasted OK though. It is something of a green room, with green walls, green ceiling, and green upholstered furniture. No free drinks though! There was some pop music being played, there were a couple of TVs but neither were on. This seemed to be a decent enough pub without being anything special that is OK for a pint if youre passing, but I wont go out of my way to visit again.
