Fullers have taken this place over. It was fine when I was there last month. Usual Fullers beers, quite busy after-work crowd predominating, efficient staff.

I booked this venue for a work team night out before reading the kniting sit-in gang reviews and so went wondering whether I'd made the right decision. In the end the service was great: really smiley and chatty and a notably impressive trick of being able to remember our whole group's orders without writing them down. The food was a good and arrived in a timely way. The atmosphere was very lively.

I found the staff here to be very friendly and I have a feeling that the seven reviews remarking on the terrible customer service that were posted within three days of each other in August are by the same person, or group of people, as none of these user names have commented on any other pubs. In fact I wasn�t that keen on this place and the main redeeming feature was the polite and friendly staff, so maybe there has been a change in management or service policy.

This place is directed at a younger crowd so unfortunately the powers that be have stocked up on standard and premium lagers and decided that there is no need for any real ale. I opted for a pint of Guinness which was decidedly iffy, which may be down to the barman changing the barrel half way through my pint or maybe just bad cellarmanship.

The pub wasn�t that busy, but it was still difficult to get comfortable and we ended up plotting on the edge of one of the two large reserved tables by the door. The party that booked them were very friendly and thankfully had no problems with us being perched there for half an hour. There are a couple of old TVs up on the walls, but I�m not sure what they are for as I didn�t spot any signs advertising any upcoming sporting events. The background music wasn�t too loud and obtrusive, although I would have opted for a different selection of songs.

The toilets are downstairs where a function room is also located, which was hosting a stand-up comedy night later in the evening, but we left before it had begun.

I didn't find this pub to be offensive, but I wouldn�t go out of my way to drink here again.

We ate in this pub last night and the food was pretty good. Then latter on in the evening when stood at the bar we noticed a mouse running about on the hot plate in the kitchen. When we told the staff they just laughed and told us we didn't see it.
DO NOT go to this pub it is a risk to your health
