Not only closed, but gutted - the place is a shell. No idea whether it's going to re-open, but the estate agent's sign is residential. With any luck this miserable excuse for a boozer has gone for good.

This place is constantly closed and perhaps should be permanent .

This pub has Sky Sports and plasma screens dotted about and there is a pool table at the back past the long bar serving up standard draught.

I popped into here late on Monday afternoon to discover a band playing the sort of songs you would expect at a wedding disco. I wondered why on earth a band would be playing at this time and then it dawned upon me, all of the locals must pick up there dole money on a Monday. This place is a cesspit of feckless wasters that thieve and cheat their way through life leaving nothing but misery and more feckless wasters behind them.

Whilst I was making my escape I was approached by an old crone making her way to the bar. She obviously lost her teeth many years ago, but she still managed to tell me how great the band were whilst tacking a swig of her Smirnoff Ice and lighting her cigarette at the same time. I quickened my pace and made the exit and when I glanced back to make sure I hadnít been followed I spotted the burnt out remains of an old Litten Tree sign up above the door and then all became clear.

If I ever happen to have my brain removed and I survive I will be a regular customer in this septic pit.

I take my previous post back, I had a strage romantic vision of this pub which turned out to be wrong, this pub is a complete dump. It smells constantly of a bad fart, apparently because of permanent local sewage issues. The toilets are beyond belief. The people in there look like extras from One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and some of the staff are coarse, loud and abusive. Don't go anywhere near this place if you can help it. Cheap drinks though.

I don't know what the problem is with the other people who have left messages here, this is a wonderful pub with an incredible array of fine lagers, ales, ciders and an extensive and interesting wine list. On top of that the barmaids are stunning and impeccably polite, the clientele always good humoured and well behaved, and the decor and layout of the pub is an example for all others to follow. What a lovely area it's in as well.

Very unpleasent atmosphere. This pub has had various different names/managers but it always manages to draw in the same crowd of old drunks and under-age base-ball caps that get aggressive after a few WKD's. Having dead flowers and old condolence cards tied to the tree outside hardly inspires confidence..........

really rough pub, good pub to go to if you want a fight
