The Prince Albert, Twickenham

Final stop in Twickenham last night was the Prince Albert. Our main reason for a visit was to try the Thai food, which was very tasty. Fuller's ales were London Pride, ESB & Oliver's Island. I opted for the guest ale, which was Big Smoke Cosmic Dawn. A few were in watching the Manchester City Champion's League game. Our meal was spicy, but nice. The only disappointment was that we never received any change from the bill. The Thai kitchen and waiting staff seemed more intent on closing up the kitchen and finishing for the night. I'd probably give it another try though.

The Sussex Arms, Twickenham

The Sussex Arms is still one of my favourite pubs in London. It was busy as usual on our Wednesday evening visit. Quiz night was on. So, a number of tables were reserved. Once the quiz people arrived, we were relegated to the garden. But there are patio heaters to keep you warm. The loyalty card offered by this chain is still a good feature. Harvey's Sussex Best Bitter is a regular. So is their own Big Smoke Underworld. Other Big Smoke ales were Cosmic Dawn & Western Sun. Guests were Five Points Railway Porter, Gloucester Dockside Dark, Buxton Low Tor, Flying Monk Hoptimistic Monk, Fuller's Last Drop, Caveman Strawberry Milkshake IPA, Mad Squirrel Revolution, Ascot Gold Cup & Manchester Brewing Company Christopher Columbus Pale. There are also still 6 real ciders on handpull - Lilley's Mango Cider, Seacider Ginger Bread Infused Cider & Lemon Meringue Pie, Thistly Cross Whisky Cask, Barbourne Major Jane & Ross-on-Wye Michelin/Dabinett. Still a decent pub. But I may avoid quiz night next time.

The Rifleman, Twickenham

The Rifleman was closed for a while. But it has re-opened and now stocks a good range of Twickenham Brewery beers. Young's Ordinary & Butcombe Original are regulars, alongside Twickenham Naked Ladies. The other 3 ales were also from Twickenham - Redhead, Winter Star & American Nut Brown. We had to wait for the latter to be changed. But it wasn't too long a wait. There was no sign of a real cider. The interior of the pub is unchanged. It's a single, cosy room. Sport is still shown on the TV. Cricket was on yesterday. Still a fairly decent stop.
