On a recent visit to London, we took a one day bus tour from our ship moored in Dover to London. We visited most of the major tourist sights around London to include the change of the guards at Buckingham Palace, etc. It was on a Sunday, so traffic was light and we were able to see and get around pretty well. My question is about the 'Pub" visit for lunch, we had scheduled by the tour company. The Pub was the Freemasons Arms. The food that was served was fish & chips. One was also offered a choice of larger, bitters or soft drink with lunch. Coffee or tea after lunch. The fish & chips was't very good, at least I didn't like the batter, as I thought it wasn't to tasty and to thick. The white fish, was good though. I chose the Bitters for my beer. I was really disappointed in my choice of beer it was flat and had no body to it. It was like colored dishwater. I was wondering what the reputation of this particular Pub was like with locals? Is the beer named bitters, normally like that? Did we get a tourist rip off? I discovered Hall's Ale later on in the UK, NI and on the ship and liked it.
