Great pub just talking to new management and staff been coming here for sometime now and have to say it's really chilled and good if you like real ale also really nice just to relax and let time and worries drift away. There getting the sports going soon so looking forward to just sitting down with a good beer and good company and have a great time. 5 star place and a good place to chillout

They ran out of draught beer at 7pm on a Thursday. Is this a record? A younger woman behind the bar couldn't have cared less, the manager was apologetic. They hadn't had many people in, we had booked space for 20 and had been there less than an hour, it is poor form for this brand of pub. A pity when it seems cared for and all other ingredients seem good, giving it a 2 for having a decent draught cider.

I visited this pub for the first time on Friday evening 26/11/2010. From the previous reviews here I was looking forward to it. I guess it is under new management and has been 'done up'. There was a shiny new bar with lots of shiny chrome lager dispensers and 6 hand-pumps all with the labels turned round indication no ale. The music was extremely loud and of questionable taste. I walked straight out again. I couldn't bear to spend any time in there.

the two drawbacks were that a lot of the beers were off, and it was quite expensive. otheriwise, it's one of the nicest pubs i've been in. beutifully decorated and lit, just a really nice place to spend an evening. complete with board games. a real must-try.

5 handpulls with all but 1 pump clip turned round was not the best first impression for this pub. The solitary beer was Ossett Yorkshire Blonde, with Shepherd Neame Spitfire and Master Brew both absent. No Shepherd Neame beers in a Shepherd Neame pub? The interior is quite nicely decorated with plenty of wood - floorboards, chairs, tables, shelves etc. Puppets and toy soldiers add a slightly eccentric air to proceedings. Lantern type lighting above the bar and chandeliers above the seating give illusions of grandeur. Food was listed on a blackboard. Admirably there was no music and the TV was off. The landlady was friendly. But 9 for a 750ml bottle of cider?! This may be London. But it's one of the most expensive ciders I've ever consumed. Nice enough pub. But plenty of drawbacks.
