Brought my 2 year old in here after 8pm last night! But don't worry, he won't become a regular! Like his father, he leads a bit of a nomadic lifestyle. This is as typical a railway pub as you will find - a great place to sink one or two before your train and a good excuse to miss a few too. 4 ales were on - Timothy Taylor Landlord, Hopback Summer Lightning, Acorn Gorlovka & Yeovil Posh IPA. They are advertised on a blackboard outside the front door. I particularly appreciated the stout. It was the only truly dark ale I had found during my days's travels. There seemed to be some kind of astroturf on the ceiling of the gents which I found a little odd!

Why oh why do we have to put up with very young kids (3 or 4 year old) screaming and running around at gone 8pm in the evening?

To keep The Woodman (now closed) exiles, some of which said they'd never set foot in here happy.

Combine this with an idiotic SWT employee that spends 5 hours a day in here, in uniform, spouting absolute rubbish and thinks he's funny.

The beer is good but the ambience is getting to be really hard work.

Beware if you arrive late in the evening, both doors shut at 21.55 last night.

Pub has a voter's choice for one of the hand pumped beers, currently it's TT Landlord - rare for this part of the world, needless to say sales of Doom Bar have dropped.

Large rambling old style hotel type of pub with a bit of a run down feel to it. Oly a few old souls in watching the football on the telly. Three ales on of which I tried the Plain Inntrigue which was nice enough.
