|What a difference new management can make!|
The pub has had an interior refresh with new carpets and good quality furniture but the overall effect is that it is bright, warm and welcoming.
It's clear the landlady and her husband care about the pub, the clientele and the community - it's telling to hear them both class many of their punters as 'friends' rather than customers.
Perhaps most impressive is the work done to the garden, which has transformed it into a 'destination' for families looking for a friendly drink in a safe environment for the children - with a fantastic play area that really makes the most of a garden that is deceptively larger than at first glance.
We had the pleasure of holding a family event in the garden and the landlady and her staff couldn't have done more for us - all of my guests commented on how impressed they were with the facilities and the welcoming received.
Since then there have been bands, singers and even the odd singalong by the punters - but there is always something going on and laughter and good times are ever-present.
As a Guinness drinker I've always been patient and have never had any complaints about the beer but have been told by friends that the real ale is perfectly poured, varied and with frequent guest ale rotation.
The landlady Trudy and her husband "Stretch" are immediately obvious as a popular couple that are interested in providing visitors with a quality experience without being 'in your face' and this shows from the constant stream of new faces that rapidly turn into regulars.
Finally, and from my personal point of view most interestingly; this pub now boasts what I believe is the South of England's widest selection of prestige vodkas - up to 180 available! Everything from flavoured and unusual tipples are offered up to the real famous heavyweights - you can (and should!) have a complete vodka education in a single evening!!
