A Year Of Beer 8 : The Cat and Custard Pot, Shipton Moyne

The Cat and Custard Pot, The Street, Shipton Moyne, Gloucestershire

Lovely country pub in the middle of a lovely country village, serving lovely country food .... well, you get the idea. It's the kind of place that you would want to take a visitor from overseas to let them experience what they think an English pub is like (although I am not sure that it is what an English pub is typically like). It would be nice if the name stretched back to antiquity but it was the idea of a Brewery marketing department back in the 1920s. But the building is real enough, and so was the beer. It was a pint of very refreshing Wickwar Bob : there is no better word for it - lovely.
