#197. Bath Arms, Meeting House Ln, Brighton

DSCN1107I asked the bartender to pour me a pint of the best cask ale on tap, and he chose the brand new Whistable Bay from Shepherd Neame of Kent.

Ace was getting shots bought for him by a trio of dudes.

Then I asked for the second best cask ale on tap, and received a Bishops Finger, also by Shepherd Neame. Kind of a cheeky name that one, eh? However, according to their website, "[it] takes its quirky name from finger-shaped Kentish wayside signposts which pointed pilgrims the way to St Thomas à Becket’s shrine in Canterbury Cathedral before it was destroyed on the orders of Henry VIII in 1538."
