Friday-night visit for band, so was pretty busy. Feels like a "locals" pub, but none the worse for that, as it had a friendly atmosphere - not a "slaughtered Lamb". Friendly, efficient, bar staff including an attractive barmaid - sorry, barperson.
Guinness was fine, if a bit cold, otherwise a typical mainstream selection.
New management are making a big effort, and have brightened the main bar up, so it no longer has the gloomy feel that traditional "fag brown stain" pub paintwork offers. Hopefully they will also be a bit more adventurous with the beers on offer.
Bogs (gents anyhow) clean and tidy.
Delux darts kit indicates the thriving darts teams (the Crocus are in at least the local leagues). Also pool tables / teams.

Now under new management (the couple who previously ran the saffron Hotel) and the service is very friendlyand pub is not smelly any more. Unfortunately only 1 real ale of fair quality, but Guinness is OK. Food is good when available. Problem is that food availability is dependent on presence of Steve and ingredients so can't be guaranteed. Regulars seem friendly.
