It was the firm's Yule Do last night and though we all thoroughly enjoyed a very late Critical Mass in the Artillery, the beer of the night, and the week, was GADDS' Number 5 at the Sir Stanley Grey. For the last year now Alan has been turning over an impressive volume of the stuff and boy he keeps a cracking pint. Cool, clear and really fresh, its sheer drinkability consigned the wine list to the bin.
And, it has to be said, the food, the service and the ambiance was delightful. In these troubled times for the pub industry it's a real tonic to spend the evening in a business run by truly talented professional - well done Sue. (Alan ain't bad at his job either).
