Found the Spitfire a little off......and very expensive, especially considering how basic the pub is.
Probably not a place I'll go back to.

Didn't want to go in there at first as the colour of the pub looked naff (who on earth chose mustard?). Bright white would be a lot fresher.

Anyway we went in because it looked more like a traditional pub as opposed to a naff themed one and were pleasantly surprised. It was nice and dark and cosy.

There was a bookshelf (proceeds would go towards Demelza House, which was nice and ethical). I always like pubs that have books in, and you can take them out, not just there for show. I noticed the games in the window which encouraged me to go into the pub. It also has old fashioned traditional games like shove ha'penny. I was looking for a pub that is fun in a traditional way and community focused. We had a nice cider. I think reviewers who go round bitching behind staff's backs are cowards. They were absolutely fine. I went out with a student from the University and trust me, not all students want to vomit and trash the place!

I'd definitely go back again 'as a regular', and hope to play some board games there (and chess), at least it keeps my middleaged student friend out of trouble!

Went in here on Good Friday and have to say the place impressed me. The Spitfire was well kept and the food selection was extensive. The Steak Huffkin was lovely and the Irish guy behind the bar couldn't have been more friendly or welcoming.

THE worst pint of Masterbrew ever (turgid, fizzy vinegar) plus the most ignorant/lazy bar staff all add up to a real disaster. It's not cheap either. Not one I'd recommend.
