|Recent weekend visit proved to be rather disappointing - ale was ok - not the best i've had in darlington - punters in there frankly unbearable and atmosphere really quite offputting - seemed that the place was run by a cadre of civil servant regulars - only amusing thing was the rather inept member of bar staff trying to get the drinks order right!|
Shame really - on paper this could and should be a cracking place - in reality I've had better - if you lived in a real ale desert you could be forgiven for thinking this place is the puppies privates. In this area it's just a dogs dinner.

|Nothing really special apart from the two little booth type bits by the front windows. Ale was okay as opposed to good (Collingham Artisan - which was just about drinkable). It is dog and child freindly to the extent of letting them i to the kitchen area though as I wans't eating there it didn't bother me so much.|

|I really like this pub but after my last visit my view of it has become tarnished.|
While visiting with my partner and another couple of friends we managed to get a seat at the front of the pub on a busy saturday evening.
We got chatting to another group of people on the next table who turned out to be regulars.
Stuck to the table was a hand written not saying reserved from 7.30
Sure enough when 7.30 came round a member of staff proceeded to move this party on in order to let some other people in.
We all found this to be unusual and very unfair and let the member of staff know in no uncertain terms.
He told us that these people who had just turned up were regulars who had complained that they could never get a seat when they come in.
I WOULD SAY TO THEM THAT THEY SHOULD GET IN EARLIER IF THEY WANT A SEAT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE HAS TO AND NOT BE SO POMPOUS........
Needless to say the other people left and no doubt wont return in a hurry.
I do hope the management dont make a habit of this and turn the pub into a stuck up establishment which would be a shame.....

|Pleasant well-kept and well-run pub with more than enough smartly uniformed and friendly staff at lunch time on New Year's eve. Beer was good both in terms of choice and quality and food looked good as well. |

|Very nice pub, excellent beer. A victim of its own success however as it was vastly overcrowded on a Saturday night.|
