Seems to be on the up now. They have recently appeared on social media and are boasting a cheap £5 Sunday lunch. A well known local band have been booked for early March and some other live music dates are planned. Now been in for ages, but planning to visit when the pub band plays see what is on offer.

Unfortunately S & N just don't care so not only has the kitchen been closed for ages, the coffee machine similarly broken and not fixed, the beer & wine fridges often broken so nice warm tonic with your gin or even hot white and rose wine.

Even with the Railway across the road now closed most customers of both have abandoned it and the staff are demoralized.

Textbook example of the worst way to run a pub while they are still advertising to try to find a tenant to take it on, some hope as onerous terms! So long as you don't need to use the loos even the P.O.W. is now better.

Dropped in last Saturday at about 9pm and the place was practically empty, which does not bode well. The staff were friendly enough and the beer was tolerable if not great. Interior was clean and I have seen far worse so the lack of punters was puzzling! I am wondering if I have missed a decent little boozer here and may return next weekend.

Sad news is that Ian and his family, who have done so much to improve the food and ambiance, are leaving shortly. Seems the pubco's promises were not kept and in fact the pubco itself is now under wing of S & N management.

The smoking laws mean that the front door decoration of pubs like this is some creature of the night with his dodgy roll-up. Doesn't help the image of the pub. I have intended to drop in several times, but almost every time I have passed by there seems to be some altercation going on.

In its defence, when I have been in there the beer was very good and I greatly regret the passing of the Deuchars as the local beer. May be a bit like the "Ship of Fools" in Croydon, where to need to get past the congregation of the weird and wonderful to get the quiet and peaceful area at the moment.
