This third rate dive makes me shudder. It looks as if it's stuck in the gutter of Calcutta it's so dirty and neglected. Ironic for somewhere that seems to charge sky-high prices for what it calls drinks.
AVOID.

There is talk of real ale becoming available in this place and it may be from a local brewery which would be great news.

OK - you use this place if you feel you "fit in" ... green, liberal, socialist, kinda global outlook ?
Free band nights (v good), films, and its where the local folk club meet.
Their food looks lovely too (for vegan / veggie stuff) and can anyone quibble with a place that has always stocked "Erdinger Piquantes" for 3:50 ?

Poor.

Basically it is what it is, the bar staff are average and the beer is alright. That pretty much sums' it up in all honesty.

This is not a pub at all.

If you like VERY expensive (read rip-off) price drinks with hoardes of hippies into vegetables rights and peace, this may be somewhere you'd be mad enough to look at. No local beers, weird and very unprofessional staff.

Avoid like the plague. You might catch it there...
