Bath is full of quite wealthy middle class types, but the customers in here happily don't fit that demographic. It is a big pub, and usually quite busy (and getting served can sometimes take a while), with a very mixed range of ages. It is not really a real ale drinkers pub. Compared to some of the pretentious places in Bath, I rather like it.

A good sized pub just off the main shopping street, but lacking much in the way of any individual character or personality. It looks to have been recently refurbished and was tidy enough, but that�s about all I can really say in it�s favour.

There are several different rooms all full of tables and chairs, and food is clearly a major draw here. We didn�t try it ourselves so I can�t comment on it, but it certainly seemed popular with barely a free table in the pub. Then again, perhaps that�s inevitable given it�s proximity to the shops, the time of year and the time of day (early evening) that we visited. A sign advertised curry and steak nights, and a board listed a selection of pies that were available. These are apparently available as part of a �pie and pint� deal for �5.50.

Decor is unremarkable with flock wallpaper and carpet throughout, except for a tiled area around the bar and numerous black and white photos on the walls. There were also a couple of plasma screens on the wall and a notice advertised a regular quiz night. A sign on the bar proclaimed �real ales sold here� but since they only had one on, that seemed somewhat misleading. Clearly somebody should have removed it.

The solitary beer offering was Doom Bar. There were pumps for EPA and London Pride, but these had both apparently run out. Not a good sign at 6:00pm on a Friday evening. Who on earth does their stock control? Ciders faired no better with just Strongbow available, unfortunately.

There are many great pubs in Bath, but I'm afraid this is one that did not impress. I had a pint of marston's Pegigree and it was really smelly rotten. Pretty seedy mid-afternoon. Staff were friendy but it was a case of "well, it looks ok".

Have enjoyed many a pint and some food in here with my friends at various times and have never seen any sign of trouble. I wouldn't take them in there if it was like that!
Does get very busy sometimes, but the beer is good (2 or 3 Reals) and the food quick and well prepared.
