Hey guys - new owners, totally refurbished, now worth going to.
This has been our nearest pub ( < 1/2 mile) for the last 40 years, and we had only bothered trying it twice in that time. But it reopened this week. They had Doombar, Pride and Greene King IPA - I had the Doombar and the IPA, both were good. Now also serving food, fairly simple burgers, pizzas and a few classics. Nothing to startle, but very enjoyable.
Service was friendly, with the sort of eagerness you would expect in the first week of new ownership.
They have redone the garden at the back, but with outside temperature of 2 degrees, we didn't investigate, other than to see there are a couple of tables next to the canal - roll on summer.
The refurb hasn't spoilt anything - it's still a cosy, one room pub serving real ale.

Utterly remarkable one room pub with a tatty beer garden and less than clean glasses presided over by a friendly lady from Wallsend, Tyne & Wear. Completely at odds with every other establishment in this well heeled town and no ale on tap. So, hardly a winner but definitely a contender for the 'so poor, it's good' category. Pretentious it ain't.

God!... This pub's even worse than the Crystal Palace. I've been in there twice. The second time was just because I couldn't believe how awful it was. There was hardly anyone in there, the landlady was sloshed and the place smelt of urine. How do they stay open? Does anyone know?

This place is so bad it’s actualy worth a visit. Actually that’s being unfair; after all they do serve beer.

Watch out for the aggressive staff but don’t panic, they are only aggressive to each other.

As for the canal side beer garden….the less aid about that the better. Come and see it for yourself.

Millay's right, a proper drinker's pub with a cosy atmosphere... in daytime and early evening, but >

At night, later, Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sunday an absolute local community noise nuisance. Up to 2-00pm occasionally but 1-00 am regularly FSS nights, the rear of the pub ejects horrendous noise levels to streets hundreds of yards away. Cackling women competing with loud shouty 'alpha males', revving cars in rear carpark, staggering stupid hollering males wander up middle high street like rabid dogs, sometimes brawling, at any & every hour after midnight: a known local nusiance that goes on and on, night after night, with no let up, as if nobody inside cares or even notices.

If theres any form of sport on, same again, but worse, smoking ban and free&easy licensing hours, selfish drinkers destroyed our peace... permanently.
Can't we get back to how pubs used to be... with landlords that actually ran them and made noisy drunkards unwelcome?

Ans: No, of course not, rules so there are no rules!

Quieten down or you'll be shut down, no doubt later rather than sooner, but it will happen and that would be a great shame ;)
