please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

A fairly unremarkable chain estate pub, it is nonetheless somewhat better than I was expecting and it looks as though it may have recently had a refurbishment. It consists of one large open plan room although this is divided in to a couple of different areas with some dark wooden balustrade and stained glass partitions. Outside is a patio area complete with plasma so you can continue to get your sports fix.

Decor wise it consists of a generic corporate style patterned blue carpet, and some pale green khaki paintwork along with a few artistic black and white photos of the local area. At one end was a pool table and darts board and at the other an area which is perhaps more intended for dining with tables containing cutlery, cruet and menus. A fairground style grab machine filled with cuddly toys perhaps gives some indication of the target clientele.

Food wise, the menu was very much of the mass-produced, sizzling variety and consisted of a number of “pub classics” at around the £6 mark as well as a number of steaks, jackets, baguettes, burgers and sizzlers. Various deals are also available on various nights of the week such as curry and pint, sizzler and pint, etc. My Enchillada Sizzler with beef chilli on a bed of peppers and onions with salsa and melted cheese was not too bad as long as you’re happy to accept the fact that it’s not going to be freshly made on site.

Beers on tap were all from the Greene King stable with their IPA and Old Hen’s of the Golden and Speckled variety. There was also a fourth pump that had it’s clip reversed and appeared to be something from Edmunds. The solitary cider was Strongbow, unfortunately.

Good estate pub, friendly enough bunch of staff and lively karaoke/disco on Friday and Sunday night. Live bands on Saturday night often a bit of a let down. Decent bunch of regulars, although as with any estate pub a few chav gangster wannabees.

Typical "estate pub", with decent Greene King range of beers (including Old Speckled Hen) only very occasional guest beers. Food is not that bad, standard GK menu & prices. Good for pool, footy watching & karaoke - if you like that sort of thing.

4.50 house burger, chips.
One word: DREADFUL
salty bacon, burnt thin burgers, salty greasy chips.
Heart disease in a bap.
Excessively expensive for such a meal.
Friendly service :)

Nice little pub which is probably the local for half of Great Holm and probably all of Two Mile Ash. Has a couple of pool tables and big screen tv for the footy. Serves a decent variety of beers, people seem friendly and approachable most of the time and has probably the best collection of karaoke participants that I've ever heard anywhere!
