Now re-named The Earl Derby and re-branded as a very souless American diner style pub.

It's cleaner than previously, but has lost the friendly and comfy atmosphere it previously had, replaced by an extremely cold and sterile feel. They don't show the football anymore, prices are much higher, and it's nearly always empty now, and you wonder how it stays in business. A sad way for a once fun pub to end up.

A revisit in the company of a fellow pub fan after visiting the soulless and overpriced Black Lion and Golden Egg.

Doombar was decent and very good value at £1.99. Yes, there are characters in the pub that might frighten the beautiful people, but they make the pub feel just that - a pub!

Also an excellent sign on the screens - anyone not purchasing a drink while live football is on will be ejected and barred. I approve heartily.

Didn't see the old transvestite yesterday when I went in yesterday to watch the football. Those in there seemed pleasant enough and the bar staff and locals seemed to have some good banter. Doom Bar was £2.50 a pint (Copper Dragon tap at £2.25 was turned around) and a decent sausage sandwich was £4 so no complaints from me for somewhere to drink if I want to watch a match.

Bit of a deceptive one this, on the surface it seems perfect – well furished with comfy coaches and a wide and spacious sitting area, always some football match on the multiple screens, friendly bar staff, okay food for less than £5 and ridiculously cheap bar prices, only £1.80 for a pint of bitter!

BUT – and it’s a big but – you can’t help but feel uncomfortable here because of the presence of “the regulars”; the few times I’ve been here the same bunch of people have been there, and you’re talking proper “fringes of society” stuff. There’s the usual Kilburn style drunk Irish OAP bunch bellowing across the pub, a handful of people sitting at tables by themselves - seemlingly lobotomised and staring vacantly into the distance, strange bald old men giving you odd looks as they walk past, and most disturbingly, one old man of around 75 who attends the pub every day in a mini-skirt, womens leggings, or other assorted female clothing!! It all adds to a “uh I hope I don’t end up like that when I’m old” kind of feeling.

A good pub to have 1 or 2 pints with a mate with, and maybe watch a football match, but not the kind of place you want to stay at for a prolonged time or regularly visit.

A pleasant surprise having only used this pub very randomly, and not at all for a few years.

Don't go to the Golden Egg if you want candles on your table, posh toilets, posh over rated expensive food or to mix with the beautiful young professionals.

Do use it if you like mixing with good honest folk and to drink beer at the cheapest prices. Meals are very low priced. The pub is like a cheaper Wetherspoons. I tried both cask ales and both were poured expertly by the two gents behind the bar. They cost £1.89 for that rarist of beasts, a 3.8% session beer which I'd not heard of before, but it was excellent. The other was stronger (Double Dragon I think?) and again was very good, especially for just £1.99.

A typical sample from the menu was an 8oz rump steak with chips and onion rings for a staggering £3.99!

TVs were on around the pub to entertain the middle age and older crowd showing Royal Ascot with the sound up and the cricket with sound down. It looks like a big screen comes down for big matches.

If in the area I'd definitely use again.
