|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.
