Every little helps, but it won't here. Too bad.

Still closed and boarded up. Looks like its being redeveloped.

Sadly, I fear this pub is now closed forever with the resignation of the manager a month ago. The owner's heart was never in it and her whole reason for being there seemed to be to be rude to customers - regular or not (she never served behind the bar - at least not in the last 20 years).

I understand the reasons for the criticism of this place (SOME of the staff WERE rude), but overall it was good - serving value food and very high quality ales from small local breweries at reasonable prices. The Tuesday quiz was always a highlight and the location incredible.

This pub may reopen as a modern "glass-and-granite" bar but expect it to have just one electrically pumped bog-standard bland big brewery lager.

Ditto the earlier post. Walked in to find the staff really welcoming, a few real ales on and the food traditional with gargantuan portions. Good to see that this kind of pub was doing a roaring trade on a Tuesday night.
