Have often driven past this pub, an imposing building on the A50, and wondered why there are usually so few cars in the car park.
I went in the other night, and now I know why.
Several dull rooms with a few customers, all of whom turned their heads to look at the new arrival. The licensee [I assume] then continued his tirade against the local council whilst the barman managed to complete my transaction without uttering a single word.
I went into one of the rooms where my only company in the Stygian gloom was a collection of about 15 empty, dirty glasses piled on a table.
A singularly depressing experience which even Smiths at 1.70 does not redeem.

The only bit of the previous reviews I would agree with is regarding the standard menu. BUT as these things go, it's better than a lot out there, and certainly cheaper than most others, which helps redress the balance quite a bit. Go there instead for the excellent cheap beer! And it's a good clean and comfortable pub too, no pretensions here. The staff are all of the same opinion too as regards the new menu, but they have to go with it, but they don't have to like it. As I say, go for the beer, and the pub itself. It's a regular for me now, but not as often as I would like, as it's a half hour drive from home, but I consider it well worth it. I have tipped my pot in almost every type of pub you can think of for the last 30 odd years, so I feel I know waht works for me, at any rate. And this one DOES! Have a go, don't write it off yet. A good advert for Sams, food issues not withstanding (don't think it's rubbish, it's not- just that it's standard fare as opposed to licensee's own. ). I love Sams, for their beer, and low pricing is a true bonus- cracking pint of tasty real bitter- very much Northern style- at 1.48, summer 2008, has to be a winner!

The Whipping Stocks is one of those unfortunate Sam Smiths pubs that is subject to the new 'Standard Menu' imposed by the brewery.

The result ?
The food that used to be so enjoyable is now appalling.

The beer's still good, but if (like me) you enjoy eating in pubs, you've now got to give this one a miss.

And the trouble is, the otherwise-excellent Parkgate round the corner has exactly the same centrally-printed standard menu - so that writes that old favourite off the list, too.

Sad. Once-great pubs brought down by unattractive food imposed by an unthinking brewery management. Rating of 2 for the beer, and the landlord.

A wholly depressing place, from the moment the bar man grudingly put his book down & stood up to serve us, til when ordering food he admitted the only fresh food available was milk! We didn't order! Dark, but cheap, avoid
