A very unusual pub for this part of the world. The architecture alone makes it worth a visit and as another reviewer commented, it has the feel of an old-fashioned working men's club, or possibly a 1930s roadhouse pub, about it.

The beer was good, the landlord asked what I thought of it and seemed to take a real pride in his cellarmanship. That said, he seemed the sort of whom a little would go a long way. I'm not sure if I could take him on a regular basis although this could easily be a regular haunt of mine.

We'd been meaning to try this pub for ages, but reading some reviews on this site, didn't have high expectations so only intended popping in for a "pit-stop" early lunchtime before heading elsewhere . Of the five hand-pumps on the bar, only three were in use and we both opted for pints of Windsor & Eton Guardsman. However, after the first pint was pulled, the woman behind the bar told me the barrel had run out - no problem - I went for a pint of excellent Butcombe Bitter instead. We were about half way through our pints (walking is thirsty work!) when the pubs landlord suddenly appeared at our table - he asked who had had the pint of Guardsman and when my wife said it was her, he almost insisted that he replace it with a pint from the new barrel he'd just put on. He said he personally never liked drinking the last pint from a barrel and took some convincing that it wasn't necessary (my wife being the first person to complain about beer if it's "off"). He then took the trouble to stop for a quick chat with us. It goes without saying that following that, it would have been mean spirited not to stay and have another!

No.No No

Walked into the main door only to have the landlord/staff shouting about how much money he has to three suits lapping up every word.
Beer choice excellent though so we stayed for a couple of beers.

Barked at when asked for the pub darts ? Why have the dart board if you dont want anyone to play?

So sat in the corner of this dark dingy pub. We left halfway through our second pint as the loud landlord was now shouting about being in the SAS or something and the talk was turning very racist which my colleague found extremely hurtful.

Nice range of beers, but cold cold dark pub and I imagine its a locals only BNP or EDL kind of place.

A horrible, horrible dark hole of a pub. Rude landlord. Staff not welcoming in the least. Pub all about the locals (male), darts, big beer bellies, and 100 % polyester shirts with sweat stains under the arms. Also beware playing music on their juke box. Place has made me seriously consider becoming a vegetarian, teetotaller before it is too late. An earthly equivalent of Dante's 3rd circle of hell. Good choice of beers though.

I was here at about 1pm on a Tuesday lunch time. They don't (appear) to do food so perhaps that's why it was so quiet. Quite large downstairs, with a dart board as an attraction. (I didn’t venture upstairs). Had a slightly 'trade and socials' feel to it but I'd still recommend a visit. I had a very nice pint of Hackney Best. Not unduly expensive. Friendly bar staff too.
