Sad place! One cask beer available - just and it wasn't very good. Huge interior which would make a great Wetherpsoons in the pubco ever wanted to sell it !!

In all honesty i was surprised by how i liked this pub being in a drug user part of town. It is a very large pub with several beers on tap including two real ales. Quite nice in all

Given the area, I was fairly impressed with the place. Huge inside, two rooms over two levels with the lower level being inhabited by pool-playing youths and the upper area being a bit more old-man. I'm not old yet, but I preferred upstairs nonetheless.

Two ales on - Pride and 6X - which were both fairly good in all honesty. daily papers available, so there's a presumption that a certain percentage of the punters can read which isn't usually the case at the lower end of Oxford Road.

The place needs a bit of work doing to it and a good lick of paint, there's clearly a pre-smoking ban tiredness to it.

However, it could be worth looking for as it's well-served by the 'once every 7 minutes' no.17 bus route.

Not bad.
