Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Ship

Newly reopened local, with a decent traditional interior featuring a mix of furniture and various decorative features. Side alley patio and rear beer garden. Now has two handpumps on the counter, offering Doom Bar and Landlord (£3.60). Not a hostile atmosphere, but the banter from the locals about a few people who came in after me didn't seem exactly welcoming. Disappointing.

They only had Pride on. The barmaid was having great difficulty filling the glass until I spotted the sparkler and eventually convinced her that it could be removed. I don't think that she realised at first what I was talking about – I once asked a barmaid “is that a sparkler?” whereupon she pointed to the diamond stud in her navel and said “yes, do you like it?” You do have to be careful sometimes. Anyway, why do pubs use these things? They just make life more difficult for their staff, and how many drinkers on the Isle of Dogs want an exaggerated head on their beer when the ale in question is one that is not brewed to be dispensed through a sparkler? The Pride didn't taste up to much either. I can't think of anything good to say about this pub, other than the fact that it was there, and open, when it started raining as I was passing.
