We called in on the promise of Timothy Taylors Landlord and Golden Pippen (CamRA Guide).... but were disappionted. On a Saturday, the best on offer was two real ales; Black Cat and Mary Jane, both guests (The Pippin had run out four days earlier, apparently).
Both available beers were in good order... but, more importantly, the bar staff were helpful and friendly; offering tasters of the two available beers and advice on where to find other good real ale pubs.
Overall; a little disappointing. But we will still go back (due to the helpfulness and friendliness) as it's a good early starting point to an enjoyable day.
