Priceless. The risible frothing below is a reasonable indicator of what you can expect if you visit this pub. That my chutzpah in holding an opinion that differs from those of the landlord's mates has generated such impotent outrage is a joy. I did give this place another go a few days back and I found it as charmless as I had done previously. I would strongly recommend avoidance, there are four other pubs not five minutes walk from The Carpenters. Three are nothing to write home about but each one is preferable.

I'd heard good things about this place but hadn't been until last night and I thought it was excellent. Sat in the bar which is a bit tight but clean and like a proper pub. The food was really good, there were four of us and we were all well pleased with dinner. The bill, with a couple of rounds of drinks, came to just over 70. You could get away cheaper elsewhere but given the quality it's more than reasonable.

There is a tragically pissed woman who drinks in here and they continue to serve her no matter how paralytic she is. I've asked the manager if she's alright and been told that they "know when she's had enough". I suspect that's when she runs out of dough as it's clearly not when she becomes incapable of speech or motor function. My previous affection for this place has evaporated, not only is the service truly shit the way they exploit this unfortunate is cynical in the extreme.
