Visited here with a few client's for a lunch and this really is an excellent place

Okay it's not a traditional pub in the sense that it is very food orientated but it's blinking good food.

They had 3 beers on draiught & my 2 pints of Doom Bar were excellent.

Downstairs to the left of the bar are booths which are similar to the ones you get in a pie and mash shop, this makes the pub authentic and the decoration is very tastfully done

It was very busy so we sat upstairs in the quirky dining room.

As stated above the food was very good and even though this place is possibly more about food than drink it's worth a visit and I'm glad it's been tarted up and is now saved and not lost forever as another run down pub.

Looks and smells like a chip shop. Not a pub in the truest sense. Poncey modern and quite awful.

Had a few drinks here on a Friday night. The place gets very busy but service was quick considering. Great beer garden with heaters, and very tastefully decorated inside. Food was great too - the twice fried chips were spot on to accompany a Friday night beer - and was freshly prepared: better than your average pub-grub though this is reflected in the price. Does a nice drop of Guiness too, if you're so inclined.

I frequent this boozer a fair amount. It's a popular place in a great location and can get quite full. Good selection of grog on tap, great pub garden, large room upstairs for hire, and by and large, the staff are quite cheerful. The management also seem to have a policy of making sure at least 80% of the bar staff are young, buxom, attractive women in vest tops, which for someone who is ferociously heterosexual like me, always a good thing.

However, this charm fades at approximately 10pm if you are still in the pub, as it is like a switch where the staff just lose interest in what they are supposed to do, and would rather spend their time giggling or flirting with the one or two blokes they hire. I have been in here before with only five people waiting at the bar towards the end of the night, and seven people behind the bar, and not one of them serving, rather doing such vital tasks as looking at the coffee machine, turning a glass over in their hands, or opening and closing the door to the cellar. The layout is also a bit awkward, if you are standing, you always feel like you're in someone's way.

Still, I'll go back from time to time. Once the desire to throw the people that pay their wages out as quickly as possible at the end of the night goes so they can get on with some mild petting goes, it will be a great pub.

Good beer, especially when they have becks Vier in Becks Vier glasses. Have had some very good staff and some poorer ones. In gneral friendly enough place, but as previous reviews have alluded too, their attitute changes somewhat as 11pm approaches as about 1 member of staff comes up to you every 10 seconds reminding it will be time to leave soon.

Good that they take bookings for areas in advance and table service is a plus. However, I feel the pub is miss-managed because it should treat regular customer's better. Last time we were in there, after spending hundreds of pounds already we were informed that table service would stop immediately and we would have to chance it at the bar which was 3 or 4 deep all the way round.

Better managed and it could be a great pub.
