A large and spacious pub near the arches, this was a Hogshead in a former life and bizarrely there is still a blackboard sat up on a shelf that says �Welcome to the Hogshead�. It�s got quite a contemporary feel to it with it�s chocolate brown and cream paintwork and has the appearance of being part of a big chain, presumably Greene King going on the beer selection.

The central area has wood flooring, and there is a smaller carpeted area up a couple of steps to the left and this has some cream wood panelling on the walls. Elsewhere is some exposed brick work and there is a pool table at the rear. Various plasma screens are dotted around.

Food menu looked to be extensive, and appears to be your typical mass produced pub grub. A curry smell permutated the pub on a recent Thursday evening visit, no doubt due to their Curry and a pint deal for �4.99. Most of the mains were around the �6 mark, and a blackboard listed various �Pub classics� such as Chicken Tikka Masala, Gammon & Egg, Fish & Chips, Roast Beef, lasagne, etc.

Beers on tap were Abbott Ale, Ruddles County, Bath�s Barnsey, GK IPA and GK Libertine. Ciders were Thatcher�s Gold, Stowford Press and Lilley�s Apple & Pear.

We tried the Bishops for lunch and had a bad experience. We will not return. The place is less than clean, the food poor and the staff disrespectful.

A soulless cavernous place - decor from Pubs R Us - with usual suspects ales on offer - G King, Abbot, Speckled Hen. The G King IPA served flat and far too cold. A place in need of a toilet cleaning rota as the gents had unflushed kazi's with evidence of unmissed targets covering the floor. And the place was nearly empty. A pub for people who don't like pubs. A Wetherspoons without the atmosphere. Appalling.
