|Bog standard GK food-barn. Called midweek, didn't eat.|
Usual suspects on offer, Abbot and IPA, plus guest. All reasonable to the tastebuds. Service prompt and friendly, otherwise average in every way.
2.9? Suspect one or two posters have never been in a proper 2.9 pub!

|We were tempted into the pub by the sign outside proclaiming "Two meals for £9.95 all day, every day" only to find that this didn't apply on a Bank Holiday Monday. Despite this setback we had a pleasant and relaxing meal in good surroundings.|
Staff were friendly and attentive. Prices were OK.
If the pub had been more honest about its meal price policy I would have given them a higher rating.

|Visited with my work colleaugue for a meal on the way back to Bournemouth. Friendly atmosphere and the food whilst not cheap was good. Rocking Rudolf excellent pint. Could have done with gritting / salting car park! Overall good.|

|I suppose it all boils down to what you expect from a pub. Personally, I like my beer in good condition (not sour), freshly cooked food (not frozen/poorly cooked stuff), friendly bar service (not scowls) and respectable customers (not yobs). Sadly, the bracketed versions are all I've ever experienced there. I totally avoid the place nowadays. Better to stay home where one can eat and drink at less than half the price, and not feel threatened by the clientel! Or go elsewhere, of course.|

|Reading the reviews for this pub I wonder whether we're all talking about the same place? As one of my local pubs I've been there a fair few times, (a few nights ago in fact) and enjoyed all my visits. It's never very very busy (which some people might find lacks atmosphere) which I prefer as you don't have to fight to get served and you can hear yourself think!|
The food is always of a really high standard (and not just your typical dull British pub fare) although not especially cheap I'll admit. The interior of the pub is kind of a modern spin on traditional pubs, with hard wood flooring, large bar area and leather sofas/arm chairs. I've never sat in the dining area so can't comment on this, but the seating/tables in the main bar are very comfortable and no background music to bother you or TVs playing whatever football match is on (again probably why it's a quieter pub). It always looks clean and the bathrooms are well maintained. The garden isn't massive, but has some nice shady spots to sit in when the weather's nice. Overall a nice experience if you like to be able to enjoy a drink and sit and talk without interruption or distraction.
