Thursday Night outing

The Wrong Un - Thursday 14th April 2016

234-236 Broadway, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 8AS

MB and I have now had a regular Thursday night session in our local town centre for the last few weeks now (we did the same around this time last year for several sessions too). We try to fit in a cheap curry at either of the local Wetherspoons and a few pints of decent ale.

Tonight was no different. We headed to The Wrong Un this evening after the last few weeks at The Furze proved to be a bit of a let down. The staff were great this evening and we were served in a very timely manner; the manageress even managing to find the time for a brief chat about the beers that were on tonight.

We started with a very tasty dark beer that did not look anywhere near as nice it tasted. After that pint slipped down in record time we grabbed our curry - this time we both chose the beef madras for a chaneg. Unfortunately we couldn't go large this week with the extra samosa and onion bhaji but it was still very tasty and filling. The pint that went with it complimented it nicely even though we just ordered the enxt on the list that we fancied.

Unfortunately when we returned to the bar after our meal the other two beers that were on that evening were off. So, we had another pint of the Twickenham as it was also very tasty.

Beers drunk on this visit :
1) Dark Lord (4.4%) - Bateman's Brewery, Wainfleet, Lincolnshire - a malty, caramel flavoured light porter
2) Spring Ale (4.4%) - Twickenham Brewery, Middlesex - a light, hoppy golden beer

Number of visits: dozens

The Kings Arms

156 Broadway, Bexleyheath, Kent DA6 7DW
As the beer was now off at the Wrong Un we decided to grab a bit more rock entertainment at the Kings Arms just up the road. The barman poured us a pint each of the Caledonian ale, but it was off again - our timing with the barrels is impeccably terrible.

As a result we started on the Guinness again. We only had a couple of hours in here, but it was a great atmosphere and we felt like regulars. A few of the bar flies nodded in recognition when we arrived and the barmaid involved us in her conversation on at least one occasion.

Beers drunk on this visit :
1) Guinness Extra Cold - Guinness Brewery, Dublin, Ireland - a very popular Irish stout

Number of visits: dozens
