The place used to have doormen though not now and even though it's a walk-in pub (with scan/text for contact tracing), they now don't have anyone at the door to monitor capacity. So I could have walked in but there would have been nowhere to stand, let alone sit. Made do with the newly revamped (and inferior) Dartmouth Arms up the road but on my second trip here, the real ale has gone and the keg range was much diminished.
    Pubs round here are definitely getting more full with each passing day...

    Maybe try an early start.
