The White Horse Inn, Brigg

Could be a gold mine if someone is prepared to take the bull by the horns. In the past it has had good ale and excellent food. Due to several changes of management the pub has lost it's way.

The White Hart, Brigg

Three good choices of real/cask ale, premium and standard lagers and a good selection of bottles.. Very good management and well trained staff.. Food served is slightly better than standard pub grub, with a selection of food service and chefs homemade, which is reflected in the price..
One of the top pubs in Brigg.

The Nelthorpe Arms, Brigg

A traditional pub trying to succeed but let down by the unsavoury customer element. Still it's better than the dying gladiator and the White Hart opposite is a better option

The Dying Gladiator Inn, Brigg

Never has any beer in stock, the same excuse every week is we're awaiting a delivery.. Bottles and cans only.

The Black Bull, Brigg

Good real ale, limited to two. Standard selection of bitters and lagers..this pub serves reasonable pub grub and has a steak night occasionally which is worth a visit..good family atmosphere in an oldy world fashion. Depending on the day you visit the staff have a spectrum of emotion written all over there faces, from the bubbly landlady to the not so bubbly staff

Ok here goes, I'll try and write a review that meets the reviews policy.. This is going to be tough......
As stated in previous reviews which were correct at time of publish, things have changed and not for the better...
Let me explain... Although the building stays the same albeit they are extending through to next door, the fabric and decor of the property is now tired and worn.. Most outside tables and decking are showing signs of rot.. Money spent here would increase footfall as all I heard from the locals were complaints about the lack of customers due to the run down nature of he place.. To be fair I've seen worse pubs.. Normally in inner cities..
The management has the opinion that employing eye candy is the only way forward.. For a real ale pub who's customers expect opinions on beer, conversation and engagement from staff, well it's just not working..they're too busy texting or eating..
The pricing of beer is on the reassuringly expensive side.. In fact it's cheaper to drink in London.. Ok you may be paying for ambience, but there isn't any..
Local beer is Tom Woods, though not a bad beer, it's consistency can vary and the better options are the guest beers.
I witnessed the beer lines not being pulled through , leading to the first beer off being sour, (local and guest). This is not the bar staffs fault as thy are only doing what they've been told by the management.
Bottled beers and ciders are good quality as are the Belgium beers, unfortunately the high strength of these drinks means the pub has become a Friday and Saturday night stop off on the way to getting wasted. This has put off the regular customers who drink elsewhere..

On the positive side, the Chinese opposite still remains a quality food establishment.
