This pub has had more managers than Chelsea. Has one or two fairly boring real ales on (usually one). 80s music on the screens. A complete refurbishment, a black and white theme with nice candles and sofas, the horrible smelly toilets are much better with an ornate mirror so you can admire your triceps in your cut-off T-shirt. A couple of friendly young boys serving behind the bar with the landlord looking wistfully on. Many of the male clientele do seem to be exploring their feminine side, although a couple of guys next to me looked a bit more butch with their short hair and identical lumberjack shirts, oh, wait a minute I think they might be women.

Walked in.
Laughed at how bad the refurb was.
Walked out.

Any character this venue had has been destroyed via a modern, sterile wine bar makeover. I give it six months tops.

Looks like things are about to get worse!! It appears that the timber and etched glass overbar and other such Victoriana-style fittings have been removed and the pub is going to re-open as a very bright bar and not the traditional ppub we used to know and love. No sign of any opening date as yet but they must surely be aiming to open before Christmas? Several rumours abound about the market they are going for - but we wait and see.

Open- shut- open - shut??!!?? Windows have been blanked-off but rumour has it that new people are about to re-open it again - the previous incumbant having ruined the Mahogany panelling and bar by painting it red !!!!
