Re-opened as the 'Birch Tree'.
The outside has been painted black and bright orange!
Doesn't inspire confidence.

I went to this pub on Saturday night to see a band play. I knew the place had never sold real ale but I wasn't bothered for one evening. However upon entering I looked along the pumps and asked the young barmaid for a pint of Tetleys bitter. "avint gorrit" was her reply. A closer inspection of the pumps revealed that virtually all of them had a half-pint glass on the handle. I asked her what draught beers were available and was told John Smiths and Fosters. I had John Smiths. I then noticed that some of the drinks fridges were empty and others poorly stocked. It wasn't as if Tranmere Rovers had been at home earlier in the day and the place had been inundated with punters. It looks like a failing pub, one that perhaps cannot pay suppliers.
Most pub bands start playing at 9:30 but this one didn't start until 10:30 apparently after being told to do so by the bar staff. Those of us on public transport had to leave at 11:30. Not Impressed.
I don't envisage ever returning to this very poor pub.

In before Col U game - went and had a look at what they were serving at the bar - no real ale - left and went into ground and had a cup of tea. Will not return (to the pub).
