Had a crap pint of 6x in here, tasted like warm dishwater. Terrible atmosphere, mostly deserted, will go elsewhere in future.

Popped in for a pint of Henry's (at a very reasonable price), nice pint of beer but only the landlord, and two other locals in the place. From listening to some of their conversartion, I would guess that there's been some changes to the landlord and a few locals are drinking elsewhere now. Also, seems to be open from about 3pm to 8pm at the moment, but if you're in the area, it's still worth popping your head in.

Also, does ham or cheese sarnies (with chips) that looked good. 6X was the other ale from the barrel behind the bar.

A traditional Wadworth�s pub situated a couple of minutes stroll from the centre. As you enter in to the entrance vestibule, you can go right in to the snug or left in to the public bar. Whilst the snug was undoubtedly small, it wasn�t as cosy as might be expected and we found the public bar to have considerably more atmosphere. The snug was a triangular shape, with a helpful sign saying to ring bell for service, which was just as well as all the punters, and barman, were in the other bar.

As mentioned, the main bar is an attractive room with some thick, heavy beams on the ceiling as well as a small stained glass window that looks as though it may have come from a church. The floor is mostly slate tiles, although with some carpet as well and the walls had wood panelling lower down with a sandy wallpaper up above.

Numerous tankards, jugs and beer pump clips were hung from the ceiling and there was an impressive collection of beer mats stuck above the bar, although in contrast to this the only beers on offer were from Wadworths. The average age of the punters seemed to be well over fifty, and it was one of those pubs where everyone seemed to congregate at the bar, although at least you didn�t have to push through to try and get served like some places.

Beers were all from Wadworths as previously noted, with Bishop�s Tipple being dispensed at the bar plus 6X and Henry�s IPA coming from barrels racked up on the stillage behind. The solitary cider was Stowford Press.

This is a good friendly proper pub. I visited on a damp Saturday afternoon; it was fairly quiet, most of the customers appeared to be regulars. I had a sandwich with chips which was OK. IME Wadworths' beer doesn't travel well and is never in top condition more than 5-10 miles from the brewery in Devizes; however the pint I had was perfectly acceptable. It's nice to come across a traditional no-nonsense pub - there are fewer and fewer of these around.

Main bar (saloon?) was so busy we had to go into snug, which was less colourful in decor and characters. However, nice pint of Wadworths on a Saturday night
