I totally understand the comment from Love_good_ale as I am a regular of "the pub next door" and come to this pub quite sometimes.

As Love_good_ale mentioned, some staff are not keen on their job, however, a few staff are nice.

Megan, the barmaid, is working hard with her nice smile.
She is very beautiful too!!

Not bad for a Wetherspoons pub really. This does feel like a proper pub. 5 hand pumped ales are usually always available that do alter. Watch out for what glass the bar staff pick up, you don't want to drink your ale out of a 'super chilled' embossed glass in large letters down the side.
The young girl serving on her own yesterday about 14:40 did not have a clue how to serve a bar on her own. 3 other customers and I had been waiting about 5 minutes in front of the hand pumps. Other customers were in the mean time coming in the other door in front of her. Then the girl announces to us 'you will have to come this side if you want to be served'. She then serves all the most recent people that have come in, that are in front of her.
Yes, it is cheap, the ale is usually ok although poured heavily through a swan neck. It will take about two minutes for it to settle down like a pint of guinness. This enables a pub to get many more pints out of a barrel. 305 pints out of a 288 pint barrel! You lose a lot of your lunch hour queuing but you can get two pints of ale for nearly one pint at the pub next door.

Rushed in here last night as my train was delayed and only left me about 20 minutes to sink a couple of pints before the game. Had a Hampshire Brewery Lionheart and a Naylor's Pinnacle. Both very enjoyable, particularly the Lionheart. Not a typical Wetherspoons, a lot more pub like and I wouldn't put you off.
