Popped in for a quick couple of pints recently for a "lets go somewhere we aint been for ages" drink. It was daytime so no idea about evenings entertainment etc but the pint of Holsten Export was really nice. Yes I know thats not ale but it is a pint of alcohol so it counts. Food looks OK and the chap serving was friendly. Probably just out of walking range for me otherwise would go here more often

Good pub and good venue for catching some brill bands !!
Walked in and was made to feel welcome straight away.
Some mad old rock chick soon dragged me onto the dance floor and had me dancing !!
Considering the area, so close to the palace, the prices are quite reasonable.
The ale went down a treat.
Looks are deceiving as i always avoided this pub due to the noise coming from there and some dodgy looking biker folks outside but i was wrong and will be drinking in there again.
The landlord and staff didn't make me wait too long for a drink and i received service with a smile which is rare these days but should be compulsory when people are taking your money and u are given them custom. In this pub i received good service so well done cardinal !!
A few things were a little off ..... the outside drinking area was in poor shape, but nothing a few pound could fix. The toilets were run down and dirty and could do with some improvement.
Another thing and depending on your age this may be a plus or a negative ... I found that the people who venture in there were to wrong side of 50 and if u are under that u may not want to drink in there. Mostly male, over the hill, wannabe rockers. Sorry any regular who read this as i enjoyed my visit and chats with the people in there but gotta tell it how i see it.
The ale and spirits went down a treat. I have only ever been down here in the evenings so haven't sampled the food on offer. Next time i am local i would gladly give it a go though.
All pubs have a clicky vibe but didn't experience that in this pub which was a nice change.
Down side also, is the parking. Being so close to the palace parking is permit and if not is sparse. There is a bus stop right outside though so thats a plus.
The pub itself is a bit dated and i understand the landlords probably want to keep its "charm" what with it being so close to the palace, but it could do with a serious cash injection in the improvement of the decor.
Good pub but could do so much better.
Looking forward to seeing the loudshirts again.
good little boozer for live bands.

Wandered into this pub Saturday nite (19/2) around 9pm after being advised it was a good music venue. The place was in full swing for a charity night, which was science fiction themed! I did have some aprehension but me and my mate decided to have a pint and see what occurred, we ended up staying till 11.30. During our time there we were throughly entertained by a sci fi quiz, some very clever themed music videos that we were advised were created by some of the people attending the event, and the gentleman who was running the thing who was very funny all evening and promoted the supported charity with real affection. This sort of thing is not normally my cup of tea, but I would come back again if another event of this type was organised!

Can't help but notice the last 5 posters all registered on this site and gave a glowing notice to this pub without saying a word about any other pub or visiting the site since,obviously the owners/staff/regulars have been trying to big up the place.I can see why,bitter was fine if expensive,there were no pictures on the walls giving the place a strange spartan feel,the plastic flowers on the mantelpiece looked like something out of the 1970s and the food menu was limited,dull and unimaginative.Nothing made me want to go back ever again.
