Well if you like cheap beer this is the place for you ! There were four real ales on two at £2.30 a pint and 2 at £1.95 ! Admittedly they were all national brands, but at least the dreaded Bar of Doom wasn’t included. I had Courage Directors, and it was entirely reasonable. There were sample jars and prices on the pumps as well, and signs advertising craft beers.

I believe the place has been done up recently. Certainly it looked very smart inside, with plenty of nooks and crannies to secrete yourself in. Unfortunately each nook and cranny contains an enormous Sports TV showing football ! Therefore it can be difficult to avoid getting in people’s line of vision. And the people attracted by this sort of entertainment, are somewhat dubious.

There is a nice beer garden / smoke zone out back. Surprisingly tranquil for the town centre. I noticed that the pub itself looks much smaller from the back than the impressive road frontage would suggest.

rough, rough rough. only come here if seriously pissed for the nostalgia value of being in 6th form when the lion was only acceptable in virtue of being the only place we could get served.
