179 Broadway, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 7ESI managed to get another free evening so decided to spend it with MB having a few pints and a chat. We decided upon The Rose again as we enjoyed it so much last time. This evening was a Friday whereas last time it was a Saturday, but other than not being quite as busy as our previous visit it was just as friendly. We managed to grab a seat at a small table just inside the door and passed a convivial evening chatting about all sorts.
The background hubbub was again at just the right level to have a conversation, except for a brief five minute stint when two middle-aged gents prcoeeded to discuss football at maximum volume. Luckily they soon quietened down and the comfortable level of conversation around the pub continued. Again, it was busy in here but not heaving, and everyone seemed to be having a good time. The bar staff were attentive and each time we went to the bar we were served in a polite and efficient manner.
None of the beers had changed since last week, but we drank them in a different order. Due to not going to The Prince Albert prior to arriving here, it meant I had one less drink this evening. Again, all of the beers were well-kept and fresh when poured.
Beers drunk on this visit:
1) Doombar (4.0%) - Sharp's Brewery,
2) Best Bitter (4.0%) - Courage Brewery,
3) Tribute (4.2%) - St Austell Brewery,
4) Proper Job (4.5%) - St Austell Brewery,
