|Visited last week, first time for some years and I can understand the opinions of some of your reviewers.|
The bar serving area was quite busy and it was difficult to attract the barmaid's attention especially since she didn't really want to be attracted, preferring to chat (loudly) with the men crowding the bar. Eventually got served with an average bitter but didn't stay long as there was no feeling of being welcome.
Looked at the menu but the dining area didn't look very welcoming either.
Shame, it's an attractive-looking pub which used to enjoy a reputation for good food and drink but is just not the kind of place most people would want to spend time in now.

|Real ale would be my preference but I'm not sniffy about drinking lager and I'm certainly not a fascist! However, on a recent visit received an unwelcome welcome from the bar staff who made me feel my presence was an inconvenience.|
Sure the car park had a number of cabs and builders vans - but so what! Been in many similar pubs and never had a problem. Probably not a pub I'd revisit, but that's a personal choice based on the sort of pub I like. Pub was packed when I was there so obviously popular with some people.
Looking at previous reviews the staff at the pub definitely have a problem with customer care and the outside areas certainly need tidying up - especially the signs warning about sanctions for those caught using drugs in the premises!

|People such as harperp3 Tightfart are typical of the real ale facists that think it's disgusting that common "Tradesmen and building type people should be allowed to drink in pubs(what makes it worse is that some them have the gall to drink lager!) Thankfully it would appear that they will returning. The pub is well run and friendly, I would recommend people to give it a try, unless you pompous pr**t* like |

|Shame as the pub has been there for over 100 years. The bar area is small with separate dining area. Large kid areagarden.|
Green Kings IPA & Adnams so yet again the usual suspects.
Seems to be popular with “Tradesmen” in week and families at weekends. One pint was enough no plans to return here.

|Pub going down hill fast, busy with builders and tv screeens, looks a right mess outside, shame.|
