Farewell to Real Ale

We made several visits to Tanners Hall, a relative newcomer to Darlington.  It's a Weatherspoons pub, so you can get some simple food, if you don't get there too late.

Martin, Kim, and Sue have been here a while.

Harry, Brendan, and Isabella are busy pounding beers. 

Mine is a Spitfire, which was on sale is most of the Wetherspoons pub for a measly 99p!

They also have Worthington Shield for a paltry 85p, but I was too busy drinking Spitfire to card.

Harry, Brendan, Isabella, Martin, Kim, and Sue are drinking up a storm.

Director's Bitter (Courage): Very malty, dusty flavor, long finish
