The Sloaney Pony used to do excellent beer. Has it changed? And my (now) local brewery, Wadworth, has the King's Arms down near Putney Bridge; but their beer can be a bit ... traditional.
Finally been to the Kings Arms. 6 Wadsworth ales on tap which I guess is the whole range. The landlord gave me a free pint for showing such interest in the beer. I find their ales subtle rather than in-yer-face. I'll certainly go again.

I shall pass that feedback on. Six is more than we see in Devizes! The IPA is a cracking session beer, when it's on form. 6X is a shadow of its former self. Horizon is probably the most 'modern' (and un-Waddies), Bishop's Tipple was inherited - I think from Gibb's Mew. Swordfish divides opinion. What was the other?
I'm Ray Gardner. I drink Blackcurrant Tango. Come and get me!

Oh, and a lovely Golden Ale as well. Wadworth's were at a Meet The Brewer session at the Raven in Hammersmith last week.

Finally made it to the Sloany Pony. Amazingly, a choice of 6 Real Ales at £3.80 a pint. I had a fiver ready expecting to be told "and the rest, mate"

Times change. Still nice enough in there.

Mrs May said yesterday " there's only going to be one of two people sitting around the negotiating table with the heads of 27 countries, standing up for the UK. It's up to you - me or Jeremy Corbyn."

Oh dear, it emerges that if she wins she will only be nogotiating with the EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier and that's it.

Wrong thread, perchance?
