This pub has been beautifully refurbed and is warm and friendly place to sink a few with your friends. Fab staff and and really resonably priced drinks. Recommended it to all my friends and I'll be back again this weekend!

Excellent turnaround from a rather dreary pub into somewhere one could spend all evening. Hands-on management and staff who really care about the customer experience and are trying (and succeeding) in ditching the bad reputation of the previous tenants. It's a pleasure to find a proper pub without music or Sky Sports blaring out of every corner; where the emphasis is on conversation.

Really nice atmosphere and beers. Great improvement.

New guy running this pub not a moment too soon. Really made a change - great beer, no rubbish, still cool.

Avoid at all costs. We booked our wedding reception in the function room, only to not have any replies to emails/answers on the phone. We made the journey to London to check that everything was ok, but there were new 'owners' in and there was no record of our booking. Or the money we'd put down as a deposit. The new 'owners' told us they could still honour our booking and showed us to the function room. (I've used inverted comma's here as it was, and still is a property owned and ran by Punch Taverns, they've merely replaced the duty manager). We went to look again at the function room to find there was no furniture, no bar, no flooring and no light fittings, but apparently it was ours if we wanted it, and the new gaffer was a brilliant interior designer and was going to fix it up. It was a shithole. We were then later informed that actually, it wouldn't be ready by the time we got married (4 weeks away), and we'd best look elsewhere. And that we couldn't have our money back, despite having a receipt, as it was the previous owners debt, not theirs. So here we are, 4 weeks from our big day, 400 down, invites sent with incorrect details, no reception venue and owners/a brewery that don't give a shit. THIS PLACE IS TOXIC. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE.
