There's a site admin?

This post is from a visit a few weeks ago - have spent a month or so trying to get my BITE password reset and had no response from the site admin at all. Finally remembered password today so this is the first of a couple of 'old' posts which I'll then follow up with some from earlier this week.

So popped in the Jollies a little while back and its had a redecorate since I was last in - very bright and airy and much improved on its scruffy old self.

Had a pint of Wadworths 6X (a favourite of mine from the 80s) - it wasn't bad at all but could have been a bit colder for my taste.

Food looked good but didn't try any - its done by Big Mike's Calypso Kitchen which I think is the chap who used to run a now defunct bar and restaurant around the corner.

There's an outside seating area but it fronts up to the street and a very busy traffic junction so its noisy and the air polluted.

Downside for me was the 'piped' music - played a fair bit to loud. Friends tell me that the live music nights can be quite good.

Was served a distinctly vinegary pint of Pride, which they changed promptly enough - yet then spoilt that with a fairly surly "there''s nothing wrong with it".

Plainly unfamiliar with decent Pride - a la The Royal Standard or The Builders - or what Sarsons smells or tastes like in a glass then.

Second one wasn''t much better so abandoned that and, given the chippy (Sarsons, geddit?!!) response above, switched to Trib and, when that ran out, Proper Job: both of which were fine.

Tried this pub after being told that the music nights were good.

Instead, found a pretty run down place with a live band playing the most out of tune noise south of the river! Too loud for a pub this size and sounded like someone was murdering a cat :(

Seems most of the punters agreed too, as when the noise started, they all went outside, which said a lot. How the owners don't realise, god knows!

Seems anyone can pick up a guitar and call themselves a band.

Beer wise, pretty average. Glasses a bit dirty, like the rest of the place.

Didn't try the food, so can't comment. Chips looked like chips, so guess that's something.

Maybe somewhere that's seen better days. Punter told me place recently changed owners, so perhaps that has something to do with it, like.

Cracking music evening and the beer was top notch and in good nick. The best pub in Purley for my money.
