A Wetherspoon''s in all but name - very cheap with a cliental of OAP''s and piss heads. Beer choice was ok with a couple of offerings from Kent micros at a very reasonable £2.25. Food was cheap and ok for the price. Unlike the actual Wetherspoons over the road which is shit, the service here was very good.

My wife had a works party in here and reported back to me that cask ale was again being offered. So I popped in. The place was packed. Seven cask ales on offer, with a large clear list behind the bar showing beer name, abv and price. Very useful. There's the big name brands, plus offerings from small breweries, and the pub company's own beer Crawler, which is a rebadge of Tetley's Gold.

The pub is currently owned by Stonegate Pub Company - a pub company that emerged in 2010 when investment company TDR Capital bought 333 lower end pubs from M&B. In 2011 they merged with Town & City Pub Company, acquiring Yates and Slu and Lettuce.

There is an assured feel about the running of this pub. The place is in good condition, well organised, and very popular. The upatairs has been opened up, and even that was packed.

Food is typical pub chain grub at average pub chain prices - nothing special, and no great deals, and little for vegetarians, so not for me. But I do like the beer selection, and the condition was good.

Previously I had rated this place 3, but it's now worth a 6.

Visited on a quiet Tuesday night, but found it to be fairly pleasant.
The pub has one large room, it has plenty of TV screens showing Sky Sports, and the barmaid behind the bar was very friendly.
I would normally rate this pub as average, however, despite real ale being sold at an amazing price of £2.10 a pint, it must take a lower rating due to the questionable quality of its beer.
I had the Wychwood, but found it to be a little hazy and clearly not up to scratch. Whilst this could be forgiven, my mate had the Bombardier and he too reported that it was not up to the normal standard expected of this beer.
It's just another 'average' town centre pub, but one that would be okay if it were not spoilt further by its poor quality beer.

very much a sports bar, ideal if thats what ya like but a no no if ya have children as they will not be allowed in. there is a wide range of food available and the prices are reasonable... ideal for a meeting place before moving on. not the type of place id stay all day as there just not enough atmosphere everyone stays in there own little groups. Id say it more of a mans pub... there is security on the door in the evening, i know they there for a reason but some of the comments i heard them saying just were not appropriate especially when working... clean and tidy but not for me, ill be sticking to the other end of town from now on

"Traditional by day, party by night!!!" is what is says on the sign outside, but I have only even been in fairly early when it operates as a typical town-centre pub with a Wetherspoons-type menu. Lots of screens with Sky Sports on, banks of flashing slot machines and a pool table. Four handpumps, with Bombardier, Youngs Ordinary and Courage Best (good value at �2.25, and served in the right glass) plus one disused. Fairly civilised during the day, but I find it easy to imagine that the second part of the slogan on the sign is accurate enough for me to steer well away in the evening...
