This pub was fantastic when it was the Tickled Trout and Ian H ran the place (pity he didn't own it)...then it closed and after a while became Trawlers and all the old the pond life from when it was called the Bugle, all moved back in...you are back in a duelling-banjos pub now. I tried in once and agree with anonymous 28/6/06 above....its still exactly like that.

There was a 'fresh fish' van/stall outside 'Trawlers' yesterday, if thats your bag! And Karaoke appears popular here on Friday nights... mmmmmhhh!

Went passed 'Trawlers' today at 6.30pm... it still looks as if its 'closed', there were no cars at all at the front. Maybe the manager could hire some cars from somewhere and make it look like people go there!!

Now called "Trawlers" (as mentioned by eagle-eyed GP) my curiosity got the better of me, and in passing by yesterday I noticed a sign above the front/main entrance "Entrance to Restaurant", so presumably you can get a meal here now. But why you would want to.. is another matter!! Have the 5 bar-huggers been evicted now..!? In which case, it might be worth a visit.
The problem here is location. This pub is right in the middle of no-mans-land! You don't see it because the Upper Halliford Road is a fairly fast road, and nobody stops along there (unless residing or have business nearby) so only minimum passing trade. Unless recommended by word of mouth, regularly, this pub will never pull big crowds. And right now it ain't doing it!
Apparently there are 17 acres at the back of this pub, including an old large trout lake! And a small football pitch with pavillion. Surely a 'good' developer/landlord could make good use of such space??
Well, it hasn't happened yet... or will it..?? TJ

I have been in this pub twice. After going in once I was in no hurry to return, but I like to give things the benefit of the doubt so went back. What a mistake. I've been in some rubbish pubs in my time and have worked in a cliquey pub before, but you walk into this place and the 5 customers look at you as if you've just walked into their living room at home. Some of the chavviest people I've ever seen, look like they'll nick your car should you leave it in the car park. I'd rather stay in than risk this pub again.
