Cleaner now. Tries to mimic Wetherspoons, but if they open around the corner this place will have to up it's game.

now called the Goose.

Has improved a bit since the new ownership, had a bit of a spruce up. from Thursday onwards it is a kiddies pub in the evenings, but not a bad place to watch sport in the day.

Nearly a year after my last review.
Some things have changed, the prices went up. A pint of real ale was now £2.40 for a Gadds seasider.
Only 2 real ales now.
Whe we entered the place was very filthy with garbage on the ground, filthy tables, glasses and plates on the tables.
We even found a cloth and spray on one of the chairs so it was a bit like "clean your own table".
Carpets in the pub are really dirty and needed to replaced.

I won't mention the toilets, I think they only clean them once a week...
Two weeks ago a mate of mine said there was huge hole in one of the sinks and showed me this on photo as I couldn't believe.
On my visit all sinks were replaced by stainless steel sinks.

The price of beer has gone down since the last visit.
Also they offer 4 real ales now instead of just 2.
The price is �1.99 a pint for a pint of real ale.

As someone mentioned its still a Spoons look-a-like but the JdW's don't ask over �2 for a side salad.
They serve peas with almost everything.

This pub is in need of a good clean and the toilets are in need of a very good clean. On my visit you needed wellington boots to enter the mens toilets. They should have put a flood warning on the door.

Generalstaff friendly, manager very unfriendly.

Wetherspoon clone with Wetherspoon variability. Middle of the road beers. Bulk standard mass produced nosh. Can be very cheap. Staff usually efficient. Ambience can change abruptly depending on time of visit (like on Friday or Saturday nights when young people swarm into town). Not a particularly appealing pub, all things considered.

Not a great selection of ale on but had a couple of pints of Greene King IPA which was good. Also had Directors which I'm not a fan of.
I found the pub to be friendly clean and comfortable. The staff were efficient and the toilets spotless.

One would think you are in a Jd Wetherspoon pub but in fact your in a Barracuda group pub owned by some ex Wetherspoon managers.
The beer I had was Bombadier which wasn't that nice.

In the weekends they have doorstaff. This means after 7PM no trainers, shorts, football shirts, workmens trousers or boots, denim,etc for the men.
For the women however, the less clothes they have on the better...
The dresscode is very strict.

Food is a bit dissapointing as almost everything is served with peas so no fresh produce...
Everything seems to come out of the freezer.
