Modern, youthful pub that has pretensions of being a gastropub but unfortunately misses the mark. Tasteful decor and a British classics menu clearly appeal to its sophisticated clientele: a spit and sawdust bar this is not.

A decent selection of real ales sit alongside the trendier drinks, but for a pub clearly given over to the culinary side of things it was a shame that the food was substandard: I watched as one of our party's steak sat on the pass for over ten minutes whilst waiting for the rest of the five dishes to be finished. Unsurprisingly, it was stone cold by the time the plates were brought to the table, and was sent back only to be microwaved as though that were some form of acceptable resolution.

The positives? Staff were friendly and for the most part efficient and the beers were well kept. On the other occasion I ate there the food was of a very good standard, so maybe the experience outlined above was a one off: somehow I don't think so though.

Overall, good, but not great

The pub has obviously tried to improve it's image and become more upmarket, which to some extent has happened. Unfortunately the quality of the female barstaff spoils the new image, it brings it back down to the level of "dated scruffy pub" that it had become before the refurb. Change the barmaids is my advice.

awful place, terrible decor, too many under-age drinkers, too much modern lager and no decent bitter
