The Wych Elm

Upon entering this establishment the first thing to notice was how subdued the air was. Two aged regulars never moved an inch off their stools from when we arrived to when we left.
Perhaps the barman thought we were lost when we stood at the bar waiting to be served, as he continued his undertone conversation with them oblivious.
Over the course of the evening it was hard not to notice previously mentioned barman staring intently at us, this coupled with a loud ticking clock, it was quite unnerving. I don't think he was being rude or defiant, but probably was more out of curiosity. Perhaps like when a westerner goes to visit an Amazon tribe, but instead of race it's an age thing.
The pub itself had a nice traditional feel to it and the only one I've seen so far with a dartboard.
Last weeks ginger cat made an appearance too, which was nice.

It seems the last pubs on the list are all in the same area, third week running in this area and a stone’s throw from last week’s pub, this place is defiantly am improvement. The pub is another one for the locals but has a large seating area to make yourself comfortable in and also a garden area. Relatively quiet with only a couple of locals and a smallish group over the other end of the bar we had no issues with getting served. All in all not a bad place, but nothing remarkable about it as well.
