Relaxing, comfortable atmosphere for a lunchtime visit. Food was quickly served and fantastic quality...with portion sizes to satisfy anyone!
A good range of real ales, well kept and served by friendly, chatty staff who help make all feel welcome.
A bit of a challenge to find, but well worth the effort...you won't be disappointed!

Hidden in the back streets of the Oval. 4 handpumps with no real ale was a disapointment. Could be a gold mine. Friendly staff and locals.

Visited during the rain affected cricket yesterday. Busy but with a nice atmosphere. No Youngs on, but the Bombardier was fine with Green King IPA the other option. Quick service from friendly bar staff, although beer selection somewhat underwhelming.

I've visited this pub twice now for the Sunday roast and have had a pleasant experience both times.

You get a generous amount of roast and the vegetables are served on a separate plate. The desserts are also very nice. The chocolate fudge cake and toffee apple pie were both delicious. The staff were quick and friendly on both occasions.

There are some interesting local characters about the place. The ageing rocker mentioned by the previous reviewer is harmless enough. He sits at the bar and drinks his bottle of rose. If you watch carefully he waters down the rose with a jug of water he keeps nearby. He might look a bit dishevelled but on both occasions I've visited he doesn't go round bothering anyone. I reckon he adds character to the place.

There is a sheltered smoking area outside and what appears to be a very nice beer garden. There is also a lovely conservatory.

My only problem with the last visit was the rap music that played inbetween every Perry Como type track. Less rap music and more Perry Como please!
