Adnams Southwold Bitter 2.00
Guinness Stout 2.25 (10.xi.1998)

This is a quite surprisingly small pub on a sliproad off the west side of the 
A44 dual carriageway to Evesham and points west. It has wallpaper that looks 
to be of a considerable vintage, and rather old bottles of beer on a shelf 
above the bar. The Southwold Bitter was well-kept and very welcome on a cold 
night in November after walking here from Kidlington by way of Sandy Lane and 
Yarnton.

In summer, I expect the sizeable gardens on either side are sufficiently 
sheltered from the A44 to be not unpleasant to sit in, if a bit noisy, and 
none of the benches or tables looked level enough to put a pint of beer on. 
If you're coming on foot from the north end of Kidlington via the Spires 
Industrial estate, it's about a twenty-five minute walk away from the Wise 
Alderman. (10.xi.1998)
