|This is a chain pub that has a primary focus on food. You can tell that it wasn't always this way and some of the locals are not best pleased with this development, but come in anyway due to the lack of alternatives.|
The bar staff are always friendly, but there are never enough of them and waits for service are frequent even when the pub isn't busy. They are usually as common as muck with thick council estate accents, and thus are about the only thing left that lend the pub any character.
The decor is typical of food pubs - school canteen based with just enough of the original features left for you to understand the anger of the locals.
Beer is cheap, but dodgy. They usually have Green King IPA <gag, gip> or Bombardier.
Food is very cheap, but even dodgier, only buy if the chip shop next door is closed.
Overall a pretty dire place. 4/10.

|Heard a rumour that this pub was now selling Cask Ale's so it was worth checking out again. There were three pumps on the bar but only two ale's available, Banks's Bitter and Everade's Tiger. Not bad ale's it has to be said. Food is also served here and appeared to be quite good. When the mixed grill arrived at the table it was served on a cold plate and most of the meat was also luke-warm or cold. Not an outstanding performance in that respect.|

|Extremely busy locals' boozer that may have a bit of a ruffian element at times but is generally just lively. Stella is the highlight among the lagers. They also sold M&B Mild if you are that way inclined. For some unknown reason a lot of people in here are sporting limps. Passable.|

|Used to be a lovely village pub but has, in my opinion, been spoilt by 'corporate vandalism' when it was refurbished a few years ago. No real ale. One to avoid in my opinion.|
