Can't believe this pub is still going.Walked past it enough times and hardly a soul to see. All the locals are drinking elsewhere due to the ridiculous price of there beverages.For a proper pub go up the road to the Stewart arms or if it's food you want at a very reasonable price pop into the pig and whistle.

This back street corner pub is geared so far towards diners that calling it a pub would almost stir the Trade Description Officers into action. The main body of the pub is quite spartan with bare floors, plain windows with sash blinds and walls that double up as an art gallery. The tables are laid out down the sides sporting cutlery, wine glasses and plastic flowers that makes it feel awkward knowing whether you should sit at them unless dining. It wouldnt be so bad if there wasnt a separate room to one side that is also predominantly for diners. To cap it all, there wasnt actually anyone visibly interested in dining during my visit and the only other punters were gathered on the Astroturf surround outside the pub leaving the inside pretty deserted and souless. Not much on the beer front with the one Ale on handpump (Bass at a whopping 3.40 a pint) and little else out of the ordinary. Admittedly it was early evening for my visit and with a few punters inside it might not come across so characterless but if you are just after a pint this isnt really the place for it.

The rough crowd are still there. Still do good food and the Bass is still on tap but not best kept as it is not a great seller.
Good for lunch
