Standard Beefeater/Premier Inn combination. The bar is a little small, but it does have a beer garden (although it is pretty nondescript).

Staff in the bar are usually friendly.

Makes an OK stop off, especially pre/post meal. There are better pubs in town, but there's nothing "wrong" with this one.

Beer quality is as you'd expect really.

Not really a pub with food. More a restaurant with a bar.

was in there Sat for school re-union. Was concerned about this venue as I like real ale...thought I would be drinking the awful Guinness all night as compromise! Fortunately two hand-pulled ales available, Adnams Bitter and Shepherd Neame Spitfire, both were served OK and tasted OK. Place was fairly busy, quite a few eating and the bar served till 12 and moved us out about 12.30. Pleasantly suprised as these places normally make no effort with respect real ale.

Friendly pub come restaurant. This is a Beefeater with a Premier Inn next door. Two hand pumped ales available; Fullers London Pride and G/K IPA. The ale was served colder than I like it and not the greatest tasting either. Having said that, it is better than having to have cream flow keg beer. We had bar meals when most of the town’s pubs would not have been serving food. The food was ok and the pub was cleaner and better decorated than I remember it. It was quite busy in the late afternoon/early evening. The two bar maids that served us were both pleasant and helpful.
