We have been drinking in The Sultan since it opened as a Hopback pub. On Saturday we made one of our regular but infrequent visits ( 1 1/2hr journey ). In the left hand bar, which has always been the quiet bar, canned music was playing. On asking at the bar if could be turned off, to facilitate conversation, the new manager told us that it had been decided to play music in both bars on Fridays & Saturdays after consulting regulars. However for most of our visit we were the only customers in that bar and very few in the other bar. Where were the regulars who wanted the music.
For our first round we were served pints of cloudy end of barrel GFB. This was changed at our request , without fuss, but should have been noticed by the bar man. The beer quality was not as good as previous managers. We left early to go elsewhere and will not be returning for any more visits

Went in to try the microbrews, but it seems the brewer has left the building.
Had the Hop Back beers instead and very nice they were. Not busy for a Saturday night.

Quality local. Hidden away a touch and a fairly unattractive building. But inside it's a proper drinking venue with a great selection of well kept beer. Owned by the Hop Back brewery from Salisbury - GFB is a personal favourite. Best of all, the price is very cheap - a pound lower than pubs a 10-minute walk away. Friendly staff. Free wifi. Now a conservatory built and a microbrewery on the way too! Superb pub.

This pub can be a bit of a walk to get to but it is worth it. You are best work out your own route using an online journey planner. It is NOT hard to get to!
The beers are always in great condition. Smokers have a really nice beer garden with Brumbrella out the back. Toilets are very clean. Children welcome. The staff engaged the regulars (I am not a regular, nor a talker!) in conversation. They looked like very pleasant staff. The furniture looked very new, but it fitted in with its surroundings.
I go here to have fantastic beer while doing the Saturday/Sunday newspaper crosswords. The free wifi helps!

Easter weekend beer festival still had beer left on the Saturday evening, whereas a few years ago it had sold out in the afternoon!

All pints were £3 paid for using raffle tickets bought from the bar.
