Had an encounter with that pesky pillar last night. Took a while to get noticed. But locals at that end of the bar were kind enough to point out my presence to the barman. The ale selection was not too inspiring - Greene King IPA & Magna Carta & Morland Old Golden Hen. The interior is L-shaped reflecting its corner location. It's a large, airy pub. But it lacked any kind of atmosphere. Possible the worst of the day's 11 pubs.

It's now The Churchill - a Greene King Meet & Eat Grill.

Food looks good, haven't tried it yet.

Beer is Abbot and GK IPA with a changing guest ale.

Service is generally good but the pillar in the middle of the bar can mean people get missed.

Me and my wife recently went for an evening meal. The food was reasonably prices yet sub standard, my wifes meal came out cold twice. When i complained to the manager he informed me that he had cooked the meal and that "it was hot when i put it on the plate". I am a great fan of real ale, but it was far to cold. The other people in the pub were loud and leary, and other people informed me that there is usually "alot of trouble" with fights occuring regularly. The staff were unhelpful and some appeared intoxicated! The manager seemed far too busy drinking his own drink to serve other people. I heard from some other people that lock-ins occur regularly (more often than not they are not smoke free lock ins)

The Landlord in there now is the same Landlord for the last 2 years, as is the clientele! The Ale is served too cold and you can tell when a Line Clean on the lagers needs doing - it's not very often.
And the only times the bar staff are friendly are when they're drinking! The place sometimes smells of smoke, too - perhaps they smoke in there after hours - I often see lock-ins after hours when I'm walking past.

New landlord since the summer - old clientele seem to have gone elsewhere & cask ale tasted good to me. Smart friendly staff & a good crowd. They get live bands in too.
