Gone massively downhill under new management. There are rarely enough bar staff on busy nights, and the place is generally untidy and dirty. They also have a habit of cancelling bands at the last minute, and they treat them particularly badly. Most of the best local bands no longer play there. It has gone from my No. 1 choice for local music to a place where I only go if there's nothing else on.

I do not understand how the beer quality can go from very good to very poor under the same management, been poor for well over a year now. Shame was a good pub.

Seems to be going downhill. Beer choice not as good as it used to be and my pint of Rooster(4.5%ABV) cost £4.05 which is taking the piss. Have now decamped to the White Hart Tap which has cheaper beer and is a much nicer pub with no f***ing TVs

I have visited here before as an away rugby fans, Worthing Raiders, and had to head back as the beer was excellent before. It's still excellent, 20 pumps on, light to dark, local to national. Red Squirrel Porter is superb.

Very polite bar staff too, keep up the good work guys!

Very busy pub with a mixed age clientele. Perhaps a little downmarket compared with some of the other pubs in the vicinity, but none the worse for that. A live band was playing, which had attracted a few geriatric rockers. Good selection of real ales, although my pint of Ringwood Best was a little stale and lifeless. Nice garden with plenty of tables.
