Popular pub, friendly barmaid, I had Moorehouse's 'Broomstick Bitter' [decent ale], Phoenix 'Shamrock' [not bad & smooth], and Saltaire 'Citra' [zesty refreshing ale].

Fairly busy on our midweek visit, indulged in Robinson's '[Iron Maiden] Trooper', a well kept ale.

Staff still efficient, quite busy on our recent visit, beers partaken of were Acorn Brewery 'oatmeal Stout' [nice pint] & Hanlon's 'Port Stout' [smooth and tasty].

Not a bad pub, staff knew who was next to be served [a plus], does not have a smoking area but beer can be taken to outside tables on the street. I indulged in one of the festival ales 'Afro-Carribean Hop Session' which was tasty.

Saturday afternoon and a Wetherspoons that is nowhere near busy. Therein begins the knowledge that something is wrong with this pub. Tables uncleaned and empty glasses stacked in odd corners. Strange. Ordered an Erdinger, a rioja and a couple of packets of crisps. Was told would have to have a glass for my beer (why wouldn't I for a wheat beer) but then, as the lad poured a pint of head into the plastic beaker losing some of my beer, I said not to worry as I'd sort it - but was told no, he could not let me have the bottle so I had to wait while he tried to sort it. Then, he tried to charge me £12 for 2 drinks and 2 bags if crisps. I commented that this seemed a little steep, something he clearly hadn't noticed. After checking his till he advised that he had charged me for an extra drink, a pint of Stella!!

As I said, the untidy nature of the day resulted in us selecting a table which had been bathed in ale, but the previous visitors had used 2 menus as place-mats... We found a member of staff to clean the table, only to hear other tables shout over that they too were in need of a clean. Poor lass was suddenly v busy!!

Beer and wine out of plastic is hard work. Vessels never look or feel clean and my pint glass had an edge that felt like it had been chewed.

All I can say is that there have obviously been problems either in the pub specifically or the town in general and the way they have decided to deal with it is to make sure anyone who wants a quiet and pleasant, civilised drink will go somewhere else, so they can just deal with numpties. Will. Not. Go. Back.
