In town on a soccer scouting mission on Rushden & Diamonds, ahead of an FA Cup tie. Even though the exterior is a tasteful dark green, this pub is pretty hard to miss, with large windows and big screens.
I'd imagine it's Wellingborough's #1 place for watching televised soccer. It was a Champions League night (Borussia Dortmund v. Real Madrid; Spurs away to CSKA; Leicester at home to Porto) and there were twenty-odd punters in by about 6pm, with only one barmaid, who was pretty hot... in both senses of the word. More staff were due to arrive soon.
It's a big pub: somewhat palatial and it must have been refurbished fairly recently, with leather seating around the walls & the partitions for the punters wanting to watch the soccer. Has plenty of tables & chairs as well. It's vaguely compartmentalised, with four big screens - all showing highlights of the weekend's games at 6pm on a Tuesday. Has on outside beer terrace which is strangely enclosed by the rest of the pub: drinkers look as if they're sitting in a fish tank, or the sealed booth that the chosen contestant might go into on a TV quiz show. The area behind the bar for the staff to work in was huge: so large that I almost fancied applying for a job, though not as much as I fancied the barmaid.
Beer? Well, it's a football pub, so Foster's, Heineken, Strongbow and John Smith's were in the line-up. There were three ale pumps, but two of them were off. I opted for the other one: a beverage called Tetley's Gold. Interesting. I had a couple of pints of an of a satisfactory ale in the Feathers in Merstham a few seasons back that was advertised as having a grapefruit flavor, which it certainly did. This Tetley's Gold, however tasted as if it was about 40% grapefruit juice! Not unpleasant; just didn't taste like beer of any sort, never mind ale.
This is by no means a bad pub and is definitely the place for a Jolly Boys' night out watching the big game.
