I have been reasonably happy with this pub having visited a few times in the recent past. However, the last visit was pretty poor with none of the 3 real ales working and the barmaid at a loss to sort out the problem, not helped by her off-duty workmate who didn't lift a finger to give her a hand. No plans to go back any time soon.

3rd time there last night. Average at best. Won't be going back there again.

Moan, moan, moan.... what was your problem with the food price? the free market perhaps. Would you have preferred to have queued around the corner for some cheap state produced rubbish?

good pub with good atmosphere but very pricey on food. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good pint of Pride.

The theatre upstairs had just kicked out before my visit so it was very busy with a good atmosphere. I found the staff to be very friendly even though they all looked like they had been busy all day. It’s not a very big pub, but it was a nice evening so there were a lot of people drinking outside in the street, which was good as it would have been rather uncomfortable inside if everyone was crammed in.

One ale was off, but Pride and Bombardier were available alongside a selection of standard and premium lagers.

I wouldn’t grumble if I found myself in here again.
