Now a cocktail bar called The Snug. Great if you like that type of thing, but I don't.

Two taps on the bar but no ale available so had to settle for a pint of Amstel. Shockingly overpriced at £4.35.

Music just too loud to have a conversation at normal levels. On the plus side, staff friendly and efficient and the place was cleaned and well maintained throughout.

Has changed hands and had a name change already. Not a good sign...

Has now become a craft beer type of place. I was quite looking forward to having this new addition to the towns beer scene, but it's a bit crap to be totally honest. A good choice of beers in bottle in the fridge albeit at a really over-inflated price - particularly the British ones. The staff seem pretty inept at serving and have no knowledge of what they are selling. The background muzak is enough to do your head in too!

has been operating as a "freehouse" ? been in a few times over the past six months though to be honest although the ales well kept there isn't not much choice - a permanent Greene King beer plus a guest which more often than not is just another approved GK beer - don't feel like rushing back anytime soon.

The bear is a bit of a hidden gem right on the high street, laid back locals, decent pool table... not as many ales on tap but fairly well kept
