Went into this pub yesterday lunchtime. Ordered a pint of Abbot Ale. Paid £3.40 i think. A bit expensive I thought.

I then asked the barman how would I know much I would be paying for my beer before I ordered it?

He replied that they didn't have visible price lists for customers, and shrugged his shoulders when I suggested that was a very poor and possibly illegal practice,

At the very least it is extremely poor customer service not having a comprehensive price list.

A pub which clearly puts up visibly so prices of expensive wines, but does not have a price list for beers tells me exactly what kind of pub it is. It is telling me that it does not want my sort. It does not want my custom.

As for its catering, selling Thai food, that tells me everything I need to know about this pub.

I will not be visiting this pub again.

The place isn't too bad as it seemed more of a pub on my visit with plenty of the old features (tiling etc) still remianing. What lets it down is the beer - bog standard GK rubbish, so I went for the Stella - which was also poor, not chilled. If you can't get the lager right then you should really give up selling beer.

The beer on tap is the very bland Greene King IPA and Abbott Ale. It was in average condition but far too cold. Got the 'tut' when asking the barman to top up my pint. My friends drank the Peroni - one pint came in the nice fancy branded glass but the other one didn't. At £3.80 per pint I think the effort should be made to at least make sure it's served in the correct glass. They did say it tasted nice though! Haven't tried the food. Absolutely dreadful toilets.

The former Devonshire Arms has an identity crisis. Is it a pub or is it a restaurant? A magnificent fireplace and tiling betray it's original function while uniformed waiters hover expectantly. There were six or seven other customers but none of them were eating. GK Abbot and IPA on tap, my pint of Abbot was reasonably well kept (£3.20) Nice interior, apart from the odd positioning of the bar in one corner, but that's it.

GKIPA and Abott Ale on. The GKIPA at £3.05 a pint was expensive for a very ordinary beer that was not in particularly good – but this may have been because it was the first pint of day that had not been drawn through. There is some rather nice Victorian tiling as well as some gilded, etched and cut glass.

Bit it did not seem very welcoming. My “good morning” (OK, it was 12.05, but close enough) may have elicited a suitable response, but I did not catch it. And it was very cold in there as well – I’m glad I had a sweater on. Thai food only, but I didn’t bother to stop to eat as it was too cold. One chap came in looking for a sandwich to eat, and left when he was told the food was only Thai. It is probably worth dropping in to have a peek at the décor, but I can’t see any other reason.
