|Now called the London Stone and offering a better selection of ales, I can't say I was impressed with this place. Waited almost 10 minutes to get served, despite two guys ignoring me. They definitely had the ability to dispense beer as I observed them later. When finally served by the overworked barmaid, it took an eternity to pour a half and I ended up with the last half from the box, which wasn't in the best of form. Only one table was remaining without a reserved sign. So I went for that, only to be informed by one of the two lazy barmen that I needed to move as that table (despite not having a notice) was reserved too. I informed him that I'd be delighted to vacate the premises! Poor welcome, poor service. A strange way to treat customers. Ales were Hop Art Hoppist, Windsor & Eton Kohinoor IPA & Hammerpot Australian Pale. The cider was Westons Cider Twist Raspberry.|

|Perhaps not the place to find the glitterati, however a dj and pool table will bring in a more "salt of the earth" type of fellows. Beer was ok and the decor in the Gents is a worthwhile excursion.|

|Popped into Hobgoblin last night , and they had Binghams Brit Hop Pale Ale, St.Austells Tribute, Wychwood Hobgoblin and Timothy Taylor Landlord on handpump, and barman was knowledgable about beer. There was some loud rock music from the jukebox, and decoration in gents also, err, interesting. Lots of standing room and a pool table, so I'd guess pretty lively on a Saturday night.|

|Good pub this but teh wrong end of the high street for me to stagger home from. Nice atmosphere and good music. The beer and staff are great as well unfortunately I don't want to fight through the gangs of pikeys on my way home of a night so the Hob is a Sunfay afternoon drink for me if I get up to that end of Staines. Like it though, a lot.|
