This pub has a new manager, Nikki from the Goat and Boot. I have been in twice since she has taken over and both time the place was packed. As for the 'smoking shed', well most places have a place for us degenerate smokers! The most important thing is that the beers are very well kept and there is a good variety. There are plans to rotate the beers which, of course, they can do as a free house. As for druggies, I haven't seen any evidence of them.

Went in this pub for the first time recently, very pleasent! Both the barmaid and landlord were friendly and welcoming. After having a chat with the landlord about his beers he later gave me a couple of free sample glasses of two new beers he was putting on the next day. Something unheard of wher I live (South Essex). Recommend!
hearson - 1 Jan 2011 19:12 must be easily pleased then if you think things are getting better and better in this warn out old street pub which tends to attract a "questionable" group of punters. The phone box outside is still a collection point for the local druggies!

A much improved pub, I've been drinking here occasionally for some months now and things have got better and better. Despite a shaky start there always seems to be at least 4 real ales available, service is good and the locals are, by and large, friendly. The pub is always clean and tidy and the decor is well maintained.

Kept away from this pub for a while due to the reputation it developed when it was the Blue Boar and The Pink Panther but went in last weekend to see. Beer was just about okay, service was just about okay but the atmosphere was terrible. There were more people drinking and smoking in what can only be called a "smoking shed" just outside the back door. Only one other guy was actually drinking in the pub....and that was 10pm on a Friday!
