This should be a top real ale pub but it isn't. It's dark and quirky and down a back street, and one's immediate impression is that it's full of character, but actually it's tired and badly in need of some love and attention. Two hand pumps - but the GK IPA was off and I had to return my pint of Southwold bitter. It was replaced after a grumble from the lad behind the bar, but the replacement also had a sour after-taste. At least it was a bit cooler. I got the impression it was the first pint they had pulled that day - and it was 10.00 pm on a Saturday evening. There were a few listless customers, but it was quiet. Paper was peeling off the ceiling.

Nearly died from thirst and exhaustion trying to find this boozer. On foot, there is quite a steep hill to climb, turn left and there it is - right at the other end.
I had left the missus shopping while I tried to find somewhere to eat and drink for lunch.
Breathlessly I asked the young lad behind the bar if food was being served? He looked around the seating and table areas (there were only him and me in the place) and replied "It doesn't look like it". What a waste of time and effort that was.
Oh well, at least the shops are downhill.

Lovely out of the way and unspoilt public house. Serves 3 good quality real ales.Although in Bishops Stortford not a Greene King pub.[ hurrah]
Survived a recent attempt by dvelopers to undermine it by trying to get permission to build flats on its car park.well worth hunting out and supporting, one of Stortfords hidden gems.

Still open, the Council has refused planning permission for the developer to build flats on the large car park at the rear of the pub.
