This was Benskins last pub they built before being absorbed by Ind Coope. CAMRA are trying to save the pub based on this and not on the Ale (or lack of).

Previous reviews are a bit harsh. I went in last night and my mate and I had a very pleasant chat with the Kiwi landlord who informed us that, sadly, it was likely the council would take back the lease in a month's time and close the pub. This is an estate pub and yes there's some swearing, and yes, the décor doesn't appear to have been upgraded for 40 odd years, and yes a couple rolled out completely pissed as we walked in, and no there's no real ale (this is a lager pub).
Having said that, this is a community pub in an otherwise pub-less part of town, and I can't say that the clientele were at all threatening. It reminded me very much of the uniformly brown town pubs I used to go to in Newbury when I started drinking in the 70's. So, in all, a bit of a journey back in time which evoked pangs of nostalgia in this correspondent. Visit it while it's still here!
