|One of my favourite pubs in London. There are about 12 handpulls with around half Miltons and the rest guest ales with some interesting ones from London. The food is good with but limited to pizzas in mid afternoon. The bar billiards table and the loos have seen better days.Very convenient for bus 38 from central London and LOndon Overground . If you like your ale in an earthy surroundings then this is a great place.|

|Big one bar pub with lots of Milton beers from Cambridge on, young crowd for an ale house with excellent pizza on offer. I stick to the two guest beers as I haven't found a Milton beer I really like yet.|

|I recently paid my first visit here for some years and it seems to have come on a lot. It felt lively, with quite a diverse clientele. I was also pleased to see that there were a number of guest beers available (I remember when it first re-opened that it only offered Milton ales). However, the two beers I tried (Banks & Taylor Black Dragon Mild and Colchester Brewery Red Diesel) were both a little on the lukewarm and flat side. Neither was bad enough to return but they were not in an optimum state, to my mind.|

|Excellent range of ales , had my first taste of Buntingford Galaxy ,full of hops and citrus flavors I hope to find some more soon. I didn't find the large size of the room detracting from the pub at all and will revisit as soon as possible.|

|Agree that this was probably a Victorian gem at one time but is now just cavernous and echoey. That said, it sells excellent ale which is a definite plus, and does without either a TV or recorded music so you can at least conduct a conversation without cupping your hands over your ears and saying 'eh?'. Food is good too, although it is much more of a drinking than eating establishment.|
All in all, tries hard but just lacks a bit of star quality.
