First call of the day, it's across the road from Willington station, but the service is infrequent. Nicely refurbished with 6 ales on and a good lunchtime trade for food.

It's me again for an update on this pub. After 3 sets of managers, a couple who ran the place after its refurb have bit the bullet and signed a lease. I wasn't keen on them before but now they have a stake in the place rather than just a wage, a total change is under way. Landlady's 2 sons run the bar ( Harvest Pale, Pedi, Bass, Doombar, Courage Bitter-rare in these parts and 1 other changing, Black Sheep bitter at mo.Wye Valley Butty Bach next). Stone baked pizza's are superb, Food offers most weeknights, Pizza-night, homemade pie-night etc. Quiz night Wednesday £1 a person each team get a 14'' Pizza of their choice. Everybody very friendly and the busiest it's been for years.They've not paid me for this ad, I just like the place a lot again!

I was the last to review this place a while back. It was extensively and expensively rebooted with the bar and lounge swapped over and was ok for a time but the new licensees were not a friendly bunch, tried to make it too foody and drove away the local drinkers. They got the chop after less than a year. New guy Pete and his chef Dean totally different kettle, welcoming to drinkers and eaters, the lost locals have drifted back and it now feels homely again. Good quiz on a Wednesday with excellent food for a quid entry as well! Beers on Pedi, Bass, Doombar, Bombdr, Castlerock Harvest Pale, Landld etc a fair selection. I am back to popping in regularly for the first time in years.

I really don't know what is happening to this place, once the best pub in this village. The new licensees are miserable and don't seem interested in making the pub homely and it's looking tatty and unkempt. Most of the long term bar maids have left, and I have rarely seen the new bloke working apart from doing a quiz on Wedneday. The Dragon beats it hands down for beer qulity at the moment and I've seen many 'Man diehards' drinking in the other 2 village pubs for the first time, and I have gone from a 2 or 3 times a week visitor to 2 or 3 times a month now.Badly needs the rumoured refurb quickly and probably another landlord.Sorry.

George65 - please visit the gents in the lounge area and you will see what I mean - they are awful.

Yes looks aren't everything but my opinion is my own - so who in the blue hell are you to judge me sir?

BTW I'm a local and regular drinker in the Man.

The Man is a cracking pub but needs money spending on it - what a traditional village pub that is in great nick? Go to the Hollybush @ Church Broughton.
