Unremarkable; Brakspear in good nick though.

A building that flatters to deceive in that it would appear certain to yield a smart, stylish town pub that respects its long history, but upon entering it is immediately apparent that none of these assumptions are safe.
I had always avoided it, and having given it a chance found that I had been right to do so. Bland, sapped of any character despite the charming exterior, and by-numbers food and beer. Oh, and did I mention the smell of rancid fat? No - well, it smelt of rancid fat. At least on my last visit which admittedly was some months ago now. But I fear from the last commentary that nothing has changed in the interim.

In fairness, the Brakspear was in reasonable nick, but one ale - and a ubiquitous one at that - in okay form is not sufficient to draw me back, especially in a city blessed with numerous above-average outlets for food and drink. A classic case of potential, and that will not alter unless there is a change in ownership.

Popped in for a pint on a walk back to the station. Typical beefeater type interior. One real ale on (Brakspear) but pint served was so cloudy that we turned around and left.

Avoid as if there was an Ebola outbreak inside. Bland, deserted and thoroughly dull.

Wonderful building. No beer or customers.
