I actually quite like this pub (The Duchess). It's on the high street so handy for lunch and a quick beer (to be honest it serves Rekorderlig on tap, so I usually have a couple of them, sorry).

The beer selection is fine, the food is decent (if not stunning), but mostly the customers cover a wide age range so that everyone feels comfortable (I tend to go in there during the day, occasionally on a Saturday the evening before 10PM).

The pub used to be much busier and noisier years ago, but seems much quieter now. The odd stag/hen do passes through, but for a town centre pub it feels quite relaxed.

Had six GK beers on the handle last time I visited. Looks like they are making an effort. Food looked good as well!!

Now called The Duchess. Soulless and crap GK house. Went there last Christmas and had the worst Christmas dinner ever, bland meat, soggy sprouts and carrots and spuds as hard as bullets. Don't even bother.

No good beer. Had half of the back stuff, that was no good either. the place has no atmosphere. Waste of energy even turning your head to look in the window. 1/10
