Looks like the winter is definitely coming upon us apace.
The pub has finished its summer opening hours and is back to opening only six days a week. Pie Night is also back, which bodes of colder evenings.
But the main sign is that the fire has been lit, making the interior delightfully cosy, even at lunch time.
I've been a bit lax in my pub visits of late - looks like that's going to change!
