Only St.Austell Tribute on which was drinkable. Had the feel of a parochial irish pub, a tad cliquey with most of the space in the smallish bar occupied by the few locals spreading out to take it up.

No jukebox but the old boys were jigging along to Kylie that was blasting out of the tv tuned into Heart FM.

Now, I can only report things as I find them but there was an overbearing smell of urine as soon as we opened the door. Enough to a) make you eyes water and b) wonder how anyone could put up with it. Totally overpowering.

Mrs M was not impressed that I had taken her CAMRA pub ticking.

Having visited the loos - I can confirm the smell wasn't coming from there. It was nicer in there than the bar.

Did put a dent (well I had to put up with some serious glaring from Mrs M) in an other wise fine trip to a piece of history.

A great old style 'boozer' - a real gem.
No juke box, no pool table, no loud muzak.
As a northerner I found the locals to be welcoming and friendly.

THIS PUB HAS ONLY ONE REAL ALE ON SALE,ST.AUSTELL TRIBUTE BUT IS SUPERBLY KEPT AT A SUPERB PRICE-2.30.

IF EVER YOUR IN LUTON NEAR THE STATION POP IN AS IT IS THE ONLY FREEHOUSE IN LUTON,AS WELL AS BEING THE SMALLEST PUB IN TOWN.

GO THERE....

A real "they don't make 'em like this anymore" sort of pub, somewhat hidden behind the plain frosted-glass windows of the narrow frontage. Quite full in the late afternoon (although this is not too difficult given the small bar area). Decent Tribute, and only 2.20/pint which is pretty remarkable given that a previous review indicates that it was 2.10 in 2006. Very much a locals place with an older clientele, but you could do a lot worse if waiting for a train at the nearby station and you don't mind the curious (but not hostile) looks from the other customers.
