This 'Pub' doesn't know what it wants to be. Cos its Youngs it thinks its gonna be a success no matter what. Management need a course in manners. And the Burgers, expensive for what they are. My friend, visiting the Country on business, wanted a Pub Meal. If he wanted a Burger he'd go to Hard Rock Cafe. Definately not homemade.

This pub is equidistant between my house and office, and I'm quite happy with it. Pretty good beer selection (although we do often pour scorn on anyone ordering the rubbish beers that you can get anywhere. Seriously, they could be drinking so much better).
Food is ok, but concentrates a lot on providing many different burgers which doesn't leave a great choice. I've had a roast here four times, two great, two poor.
Nice enough atmosphere with ok music, board games and colouring competitions.

Like so many pubs these days, seems to suffer from "booking tables syndrome" but you can usually find somewhere to perch.

Had a splendid pint of Addlestones cider here, though I thought it was quiet for a sunday afternoon. And yes, my 4 year old did enjoy the colouring in competition.... here's hoping his entry has won my a bar tab!

Fairly run-of-the-mill Young's pub. A fairly modern interior, as is usually the way with Young's nowadays, but it jarred somewhat: a lot of visual clutter in here (TV screens etc.) meaning the overall effect was a bit naff. Not sure I'd go back.

This pub is OK, the beer is fine. Who thought it was a good idea to have colouring in competitions?
