Best pint in the area until Whitbread bought it and stopped brewing in the 70s. They restarted brewing in the 90s, but it wasn’t as good.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Yeah, I quite liked Nimmos, in fact it might have been the first pint I ever had.

Bloody well hated Whitbread!

Suppose I could order a coaster....

So I pay two bucks for two shitty coasters and seven bucks to have them delivered. Yeah, right.

Except my mother used to collect beer mats, and I'm pretty bloody sure I brought them back, so I've probably got one somewhere  ;D
