A bit of a dive - not in a shabby way as it's clean and in a good state of repair. An old boozer that's had the guts ripped out of it to make one large room instead of two or three smaller bars (like 95% of pubs these days) and had all the charm and character knocked out of it. NO real ales at all - not even any pumps for it. However, there was a selection of bottled ales hidden away in the chiller cabinets at a very reasonable £3 a bottle. There used to be regular live music before the pub's closure and refurb, but live bands only seem to play occasionally now. A new jam/open mic night has started so maybe that will liven the place up a bit. Free Wi-Fi and cheap bottled ales seem to be the only thing it has going for it at the moment, although the undiscriminating drinker will probably find pints of the usual generic yellow fizzy pisswater to their liking.

I like the pub itself; it's on the main road, but I'd call it a backstreet boozer. It's a proper pub-pub~unmessed-around-with, and just as a pub should be

B U T.......................

my [add expletive of your choice]; the pints are expensive. Even in the trendy, up-market. full-of-the-beautiful-people pubs in the area an ale isn't that costly. I've become immune to being charged huge prices for a pint in London and surrounding area; and am not naive nor ignorant~I appreciate the double-whammy which the pub and brewing trades have encountered: the Credit Crunch, which has meant that most businesses have had to put up prices, but on top of that the punitive duty increases which the Government has specifically targeted at beer; then you have the ridiculously-high rents which PubCos impose; nevertheless, notwithstanding that these prices are high. There is no qualification to the high prices: they are just high.

Feels like an archetypal town pub on entering with pool table. Only a handful of people in while other drinking establishments on the High Road were quite busy on a warm Saturday evening. They had a 'Shelf of Shite' behind the bar which looked like an ideal place to offload the missus's collection of paperweights, thimbles and other associated junk. They had pride on but no one was drinking it so went for the Kronenbourg instead. �3.80 for Kronenbourg coupled with the ultra loud music (seemingly for no ones benefit as some of the few souls inside were trying to watch the Champion's League Final) and all of a sudden it's pretty obvious why this place is empty. There's a beer 'garden' of astrofturf out the back. Not the best of materials when the main occupants are smokers. It does have the potential to be a reasonable pub but not with those prices and that unnecessary racket.

I went in here recently One afternoon for a quick few Pints of Pride and found it a nice traditional Old style Pub which has Not been wrecked by the Gastro foodie brigade like so many good Pubs have been these days. Good friendly Staff nice old style surroundings And the Ale was good so all in all I will definitely visit again when Passing.
