Sort of

Video’s on board this week included….

and an old favourite

We decided to head to Hartford for our lunch – a pub called The King of the Belgians!

Friendly bar

We ordered the Bruha English Bitter…

The very best East Anglian malted barley combined with English hops to create this English bitter.

and the Drayman’s Draught

The American hopped pale ale has a strong citrus flavour with a bitter hoppy aftertaste.

Carl’s sausage & mash looked good

Pub of the year 2017
Saw us coming

Food was very good and we had a couple of nice pints before setting off again to the venue.

We had a bit of time to spare so decide to try archery!

Great fun!

We are the mods!

Carl, Roy & I went out front of stage to find the Madness Brewery Beer, it was great!

Absolutely Pale Ale is a beer to arouse the senses, infusing American style hops into a refreshingly flavoursome liquid bounty. You’ll want to take i, not leave it, with no sign of embarrassment, as we’re sure you’ll be absolutely bowled over with every sip.

Took our beer back to watch Emily Capell

Now, time for The Farm

Straight outta Metallica

The crowd were great and we went down well!

Oh what fun we had with Madness and Emily Capell!
