|I have never been so disappointed with any pub in my travels as this. We have eaten out extensively and had our share of mistakes but this pub is the worst. Let me start by saying I wasn't expecting much from the reviews here and on Yelp so that isn't the problem. I was expecting clean and simple.|
The carpets have never been cleaned, they are smelly and grey. (so are the curtains). The main TV didn't work and was small and old. NO Sky TV here. My two year old found a crack pipe on the edge of the adjacent table. I have pictures of the crack pipe also.
The wifi internet required a “password.” The landlord did not know what the password was. I explained that a screen said “password required” and was told that no one knew what the password was and got a rant in "foreign". Finally I was given the number of Dishwad, the computer person. I called and left a message with my name and phone number for a return call. To this day, I have not received that call.
While settling down in the pub garden, I nearly bashed my leg against a metal bar that was protruding from the table next to the wall. By this time, we were so distraught we decided to demand our money back and we would find another place to have a eat. We were told that the first round would be withheld no matter what.
When we were leaving we noticed a dead bird in the parking area which had obviously been there quite sometime. Above our vehicle under the pub sign were huge leaking holes. The holes exposed pipes that were dripping, causing liquid to pool on the top of our vehicle and dangerous puddles all over the ground.
There is NO draught beer, not even Harveys. The plumbing backed up in the toilets (several people were in the lobby complaining with us) and was filled with someone elses brown floaties...ick. There were prostitutes roaming the carpark, and rubbish strewn under the stairs. There were really too many issues to count. We ended up being sick all the way home (literally vomiting in the car).

|What a lovely pub! Looks a bit drab from outside but what a shock inside. Well done to you, its changed a great deal. The Ale was spot on. Kept well, poured well and went down well. If you need a lesson on keeping Ale just speak to the Kings Head. Only 2 negative comments - Its a shame the place was so quiet for a weekend and secondly, a lady (who it later transpired was the landlady) was chatting to customers. Now she seems to be a very nice lady and im not knocking her as such. It was the content of the chat. She was telling them that she was facing some sort of investigation and going on about the takings and various people chasing her for money. If you read this my dear, please remember that customers come to you to get away from troubles not to hear yours andit does not paint a nice picture of the pub or youurself. Again you seem very nice and I hope you take that in the polite way its meant. Lovely Pub!|
