Decent enough pub that has manged to keep prices reasonable,£2.70 for a London Pride or Doombar.(the Nelson in Wood green ,take note).They also have a Monday club where certain pints are even cheaper (£2).It can be done.

Been coming here on the (very) odd occasion for many years.Get the feeling after the dreadful homogenisation and excessive price hike at the Springfield that I'll be coming here a lot more often.Only 1 ale on but it is a well kept pint of Courage Best at the mega cheap price of £1-95 a pint.It is a very traditional working mans pub with a dartboard and a pool table,as well as racing on the TV.Sadly they got rid of Sky Sports but with the ludicrous prices Sky charge pubs I can't criticise the owners for this.Staff always seem nice and the regulars seem ok,if maybe a bit rough around the edges in some cases.I was also impressed they had free wi-fi.

Not a bad pub, and the quiz on a Sunday evening is a good un,if thats what your into.
Proabbaly my second favourite pub in the area(number 1 being The Springfield park tavern..Home sweet home :) )
Guinness is well kept and not too taxing on the wages(compared with some places i could mention). havn't eaten in here so i wont comment on the food(it is a pub after all, not a cafe).One thing i have noticed isa that there is a good mix of youngsters and older folk, and they seem to get on well enough,which is a very good thing.
Decent friendly barstaff and manager.
A good pub with a apprecitive bunch of locals

I remember this one when it was a plumbing shop. Very disappointed when it turned into a pub but I got over it. I mean, why did we need another pub around here! Haven't times changed!
Great staff who have for the most part been working there for several years and know how to do the job. In the last few weeks the relief manager has been better than most perminate landlords of other pubs. As for landlord of this pub, the Occasional Half, he is definitely OK. Usually one real ale on, sometimes two, and mostly well kept, with no problem in taking back a dodgy pint. I find this a friendly pub that is welcoming and receptive to all. Easy disabled access with a disabled toilet that is clean, although the standard toilets need a bit of a makeover, and I am told that the women�s side is a total load of whatever. On this basis I have to mark them down more than I would like to.

Good pub. Usually not too crowded except when the dreaded karaoke is on. The real ale is often OK and it rings the changes from time to time. The bog standard ale is Bombardier.
