Since my visit, I have read on BITE that this is really two bars under the same name, one of which serves drinks only, and one which serves food as well. I wish I’d known that at the time !

I attracted into the (what turned out to be) the drinks only bar by a varied range of handpumps. Unfortunately, it was completely empty ! I was told by a member of staff (clearing tables) that I needed to go into the other bar to get served. He assured me that the range of beers would be the same – only they weren’t ! All that was in there were 3 beers from Brakspear and one other (I can’t remember what). I decided instead to have a half of the Brakspear Dark (craft keg) – though I vauilked at the £4.40 a pint price. I baulked even further when the barman told me it was £2.40 for a half ! I told him I could divide £4.40 by 2 and I got a different answer to him, but he wouldn’t budge. I slammed my money down, downed the half in one and walked out !

Obviously, I can’t comment on the food situation, but I’m sure that’s a rip-off too.

very nice pub, good ales on offer and plenty of drinks offers on.

Lively up-market bar rather than a drinker's pub. Mostly mature mixed couples and various small groups. A welcome absence of 'lads' who appear to frequent the bar over the road (the one with the door staff).
Polite, safe, lively atmosphere and reasonable ale at the usual well heeled price of 3.50 a pint.
Probably not worth a visit just for the beer, rather for the ambience if that's your thing.

Nice pub with two bars, one just for drinking the the other for eating and drinking. Good ales in Wynchwood and Brakspears. The quality of the ale is good, I had one pint that was end of barrel and it was exchanged without question. (take note Two Brewers!) I have also eaten a couple of their steaks and they were very good. Management appear to be excellent.
