One of the town pubs that I often overlook is the Crown, on Westgate, just below the bus station it is a good place to get your breath walking from the Railway Station. It is always busy, even in mid afternoon, and although difficult to get a seat sometimes the service is always swift and comes with a smile.

I called in today because a little whisper told me there were some different beers on to their usual fayre. There are usually 6 beers available, reasonably priced, kept in good nick but fairly standard stuff. This time I was a bit gob smacked. There were 6 beers, admittedly all from the Marstons stable, but at least 3 were new to me. At £2.25 a pint, it was well worth a call. Even better when I managed to check them out, two were from the Marstons single hop range, and another seasonal from Jennings. A couple of Banks' beers and another Marstons made up the bar. An hour well spent and somewhere I will definitely call again. The only drawback being that there was no evidence of a festival list, or a time span for the festival so it will be a case of hit and miss. But I will keep you posted. https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5761264498865183675-3110933181763002390?l=www.aswiftone.com
