Had specifically gone because a Camerata quartet were playing - marvellous. The Oast House is a interesting construction with plenty of outside space. Budvar hit the spot. Hanging kebabs and chips went down very well with the group I was with.

Afternoon drinks sat in the sun in the outside seating area. Great choice of real ales if you like that kind of thing. Pint of Samuel Adams on draught recommended and large number of gins to be had.

Really love the ambiance of the place; perfect to catch up with friends after work! It'd be really cool if they'd introduce more vegan-friendly snacks, but for now, only there for drinks and sweet potato fries :D
