Once I'd gotten over the unusual entrance (more like a garden patio - but maybe there's a 'front door' on the other side?), and the fact that the inside is half 'club' (i.e. very open) and half 'pub' (trad dcor with knick-knacks), I was pleasantly surprised. Unlike so many other Basingstoke pubs, they did at least have a cask ale on (only spotted the one, Courage Best, but it was very pleasant). And the place was friendly and comfortable. So I'm sure I'll pop in again.

Popped in on the way over to Old Basing. For an estate pub I didn't think it was too bad. There's a nice sloped garden area outside, with pub itself situated at the bottom of the dip with the whole thing surrounded by a bright red wooden fence which looks like it came from a Lego set. The front bar was in a decent state of repair and quite light thanks to a whacky 70's-inspired window which seems to take up most of the nearside wall. Two beers on (Batemans and Courage). My Batemans was unremarkable but I've had a lot worse in 'nice' pubs. Basic food on offer if I recall. Clientele were gruff but unobtrusive. Never going to win awards but nonetheless a fair estate pub.

I went in there and thought i was at a pubwatch photo shoot. I think the owners only recieve photo updates to know who their regulars are. - 10 May 2009 23:00
