Sad, very sad. Avoid like the plague. It's very obvious that corporate greed has taken over, big time. The recent refit has sucked out the last traces of any ambience the place had. Overpriced, pre-packaged corporate good taste. I have been a regular there for the last 7 years or so and it has had it's ups and downs, but now, it's finished. Such a shame.

Had lunch here a couple of weeks ago. Very friendly attentive service and very nice Steak & Ale Pie. A pie with a proper crust - all the way round it... Not just a bowl with a lump of puff pastry over it. Yum. Didn't try the beer - had to go back to work in the afternoon.

What a shame... Went in here yesterday after 29 years... Initially, I thought it was closed. When I went up to the bar, I wished it had been closed. I ordered a light & bitter... the barman had no idea what I was talking about. Even after I explained that it was half a pint of bitter and a bottle of light ale, he still had no idea. He poured half of Directors into a half pint glass and then asked me if I had any preference about which lager I wanted. I tried to explain, but in the end I settled for a pint and a half of Directors. The only thing that hadn't changed was the toilets. I know, I know... It was a bit optimistic to have expected it to have been the same as last time I went in there, but I would have thought I could go into a pub and order a pint of Light & Bitter for heavens sake. Last time I went in there (1983), I was asked if I would like the light 'chilled'. I don't know why the locals put up with it. There... I've said it now. Never mind. I've got it out of my system now and I will never darken their doors again. Very, very, dissapointing. I'm only giving it a 3 because the Directors was OK and servers with a smile.
