Has had a major-ish refit recently which makes it look more light and airy> Service is ok. Beer is circa 3 a pint. It is more concentrated on being a restaurant than a pub, with the occasional live band on.

I loved this pub! Food was great the fish platter was delicious, beer was lovely with a great range! Staff were welcoming and very efficient and the garden is gorgeous. Definately give this one a go!

Dining orientated main bar which relegates drinkers to a 'stooled' area in front of a section of the bar. I wouldn't say it was gloomy as opposed to tired and lacklustre. It's main focus is on dinng but on entering the last thing you'd envisage is eating in the place. As for the ale - four beers on and the only 'out of the ordinary' brew was Waggle Dance - which I tried and wish I hadn't. A riposte to the garden area saw me sharing my smoking zone with a chav family who's brats were booting a ball around in the hope of knocking someone's pint over - much to the delight of the neandertahl who spawned them. Not my cup of Bovril but you make up your own minds.

Food orientated pub that relegates drinkers to stools by the bar. Four mundane ales on of which I went for the Waggle Dance which was insipid and uninspring. The garden area seems pleasant but was populated by a chav family whose brats seemed intent on booting a ball over the tables with the intent of knocking someone's pint over to start a brawl with their knobhead of a father. Gloomy?, I could live with that - decrepit and tired are more apt.

Has had bit of a refurbishment. Decent range of which was around 2.90 to 3 mark which was of reasonable quality and service was ok but could be a bit faster. Went there on a Saturday night and they had a band on but it there were a few very drunk people in there, I know that's what pubs are for but one was dancing around and fell backwards towards the band.
