Apparently this is the most improved pub in Hunts, according to CAMRA. I really like it. The landlord knows and loves his beer, keeps it well, always has a range available (plus a couple of good ciders) and encourages local brewers. I've been in a few times and I'm yet to have had a beer that wasn't spot on.

More power to his elbow, says I.

Right.

Generally, quite a nice pub serving food and with a decent selection of well-kept beers. White walls and so on inside make it feel quite light and airy.

But.

A group of us turned up, and it was all very nice until the band arrived. Had we known there was a band coming, we might not have sat next to where they'd be playing. Now, this is not a large pub - not small, but not so big that the band needed three amps and half a dozen huge speakers. When the music is so loud you can't taste the beer, something's wrong.

I'm perfectly happy to accept I'm an old git, but they were still serving food and my group - ten or so of us - couldn't hear a damned thing. The music wasn't, so far as I could see, advertised. I asked one of the bar staff to ask the band to turn it down a little, and he refused. The band were actually not bad, but even outside you had to raise your voice to make yourself heard.

Even on a Friday night, I want a pub, not a bar. Really don't know how to rate the pub. Should be probably quite high, except for the volume and the bar staff's rubbish attitude to their drinkers.

People here seem to be awfully harsh about this pub. It may be a little pricey, but it's right by Trafalgar Square. I think it's a rather pleasant place - beer's been good whenever I've been in, the landlord and landlady are nice, not too crowded. It's a good place to stop off for a drink when you're in the area, IMHO.
