Took the wife in for a drink to a good pub however she was not impressed with one punter who could not put a sentence together without the f word. Might have to think about going again.

From the outside it`s a dodgy 60`s concrete box, take the top off and it`s a classic estates bungalow pub. Don`t be fooled by the exterior though, inside it`s what the rather grand Saracens Head over the road should be. Nice comfy and clean, no obvious signs of late night brawling, divided up into small areas for private chat. A couple of nice ales on, friendly barstaff..oh alright then there was a Chav at the bar reading the`s a pub! Worth a visit.

Having read the recent comments placed on this page, i decided to pay a visit to the Red Lion.
Once i had navigated around a group of what seemed to be ''traveller's''selling their wares (mainly dvd's)
I was stood next to a elderly grey haired gentleman (late 50's) and a much younger person whom i can only assume was his son.
It was very difficult not to over hear their conversation, which was like listening to a couple of ten year old's.
I can only assume they will be back at school after the summer holidays.

But all in all a quite eye opening experience.

The only shorts on view in the Lion should be the ones in bottles behind the bar .

Whats going on...middle aged gents prancing around with their knobbly knees and what makes it worse is that they tend to gather in what i had previously suggested was the intelligent end of the bar...What next for these sartorially inelegant specimens??? A mini skirt and a rather fetching pink blouse i imagine!!! Shudder !!

Anyway hope to see you all when I return from my hols..Keep on supping !!

On recent visits the guest ale has been below par. Today I had what was labelled up as Top Totty. It was too dark to be Top Totty and tasted nothing like it. The barmaid investigated and found it was actually Ruddles.

Still, it's good to have 4 real ales on and the food is good value and quality. Can't go wrong with the Cheese & Onion crusty cobs for about 1.30.
