A Wadworth's pub, and one of the few "proper" bars on the Whiteladies Road strip. Reasonable size with a wood panelled interior and a few large mirrors around the place. The decor reminds me of a Wetherspoon's in some ways, although it's a little smaller than most of their venues. There's a plasma screen up in one corner but this didn't seem too obtrusive.
Reasonable "pub grub" menu with an extensive range of PieMinister pies. If you take a visit to the loos, the original vault door opposite the gents is an interesting feature left over from the days when the building was a bank.
Good range of beers on tap - 6X, Henry's IPA, Wadworth's Horizon, GWB Maiden Voyage, Theakston's Best and Wadworth's Bishop Tipple. There was also a pump clip for London Gold, although this was off on our visit. Ciders were Thatcher's Gold and Stowford Press.

Have been coming in and out of this pub for the last six months. Overall I think it is an excellent pub. Nice selection of ales, reasonably well kept.

The staff are all excellent, you don't see the manager as much in the evening - but I normally catch him early afternoon and he is polite, friendly and always enthusisatic - a welcome change to some other landlords in the area.

Overall a good pub - and now a new chef has arrived (folllowing, if rumours are to be believed the sacking of the previous ones for a errr illegal additional income), an ever improving food offering.

Well done Wadworth on another great pub.

Decent enough - beer OK if unexceptional, food good and unspectacular. Better than most of the surrounding places if you're looking for a proper pub. Must give credit to toilets - immaculate every time I have visited.

One oddity is with the staff - almost without exception they are as friendly and polite as you could want. With one exception, whose presence (or lack of) makes or breaks the quality of each visit, for this customer, anyway.
