Proper pub’s names always start with ‘The Old …’ something. Almost any series of words can follow without any questions asked The Old Mardy Cow? The Old Swan and Custard? All seem plausible, but this one is called The Old Nun’s Head.
When you walk into The Old Nun’s Head its everything you want from your traditional local, a big old bar, a nice warm fire, warm wood panelled walls and a man in the corner that looks a little like Captain Birdseye. The bar had a nice amount of rotating ales on draught so I decided to try some recommendations. The first one I tried was the ELB (East London Brewery) Pale Ale, really nice and light and citrusy with a bitter finish; it was pretty refreshing and easy drinking. I also tried the Caladonian Coast to Coast, full of fruity and hoppy flavour and extremely moreish. So far, so good.
