Went in here for the first time yesterday. Very clean and nice decor food was very nice just good quality old fashioned pub lunch food.
Pretty much your bog standard high street draught lagers but quite a good selection of bottled craft beers.

Really liked this place after popping in on NYE. Very warm and cosy and had a real community feel with a diverse mix of people. Didn't have any Ale but would definitely return. The kind of place where it's nice to sit on a really awful day and watch the rain hammer the windows whilst you're all warm and dry inside.

An excellent community multi-bar local with good beer, interesting looking food (but this definitely a pub not a restaurant), and lots of locals. On Wednesdays it has a group of Irish folk musicians playing in one corner. Could without Magic FM though.
It is definitely worth seeking out if you are in the area.

The pub is a good pub, that could easily be a great pub. The architecture is snug and interesting, loos are clean, and the furniture is worn (not fake distressed) by tidy.

The only thing stopping this pub from being great is the big TV blaring out Heart FM, and the poor quality control on the beers. A recent visit resulted in a beer and a wine being returned, both undrinkable.

There was one piss-head at the bar who thought it was acceptable to call a women a "lezzer" across the pub (he seemed to know her, but she did not seem terribly impressed either way).

Shame, but not a lost cause.

Shame, this place seems to have plummeted and not as good as it once was. Beer is expensive and not as top quality like before and place seems a bit tired. Annoying music blaring out of a TV set not to my particular liking. Who place looks like it could do with a major overhaul inside and out. The staff all seem East Europe but nice enough and friendly but can have difficulty understanding what you are saying to them.
