|Well that didn't take long. Called last week to give it a try.|
What can I say? For one thing it doesn't smell any more. Even the toilets have been refurbed (albeit with the wc out of order, “still”, according to the graffiti), the whole place is cleaner, I assume it's had a lick of paint or maybe just a damned good fettling, even the floor looks like new.
Nearly as many beers as before, some of the usual faces and all 3 or 4 we had were in great condition. Even Mark the long-time former landlord was in having a pint.
Busier that I've ever seen it, but a strange mix of clientèle. Bit rough actually, some of the women quite amusingly so. Not that I'd tell them to their face.....
Good to know it's still worth a call.

|NOTE. Changed hands. Sold out to Punch Taverns, which rarely bodes well. They're looking for a landlord so if anyone fancies their chances......|
The beer was still fine last night (Friday) but choice more limited. The pub was emptier than ever.
Real Radio on in background louder than ever.
How long before it's demolished and/or turned into housing?

|My 2nd visit to this pub.Once again the standard and choice of real ale are excellent and reasonably priced.Its great coming to these types of pubs as you get to try a variety or milds,darks, strong,pale and session ales all at once although the backside suffers the following day. |
Locals happy to crack,the lass on the bar was quite knowledgeable when recommending ales too..no loud noise either .a great pub for ale and having a crack....
Another visit is planned for next week when our group from West Cumbria travel down early before our game with Huddersfield.

|Been going years. Always loads of beers on. Nice canalside location. Yes the landlord & landlady can seem a bit odd, and some of the staff certainly can, but their hearts are in the right place.|
Example. Once I got a bad pint of Eastwoods (only one I’ve ever had there). No problem, changed for something else. Landlord changed the barrel and 10 minutes later brought me a fresh half of perfect Eastwooods, free.
This guy really does care about his beer and when you’ve been in a few times they’re friendly enough. And we don’t actually go in that often because it’s not local.
Only downside – bit barn-like. 9/10.
