A local bar for local people. Swift pint of pedigree (not brilliant) and off elsewhere before they take umbrage and summon The Witchfinder General.

On a recent Friday evening visit the pub was very busy but the staff were friendly and attentive and insisted on cleaning my table before I sat down. Beer was excellent and atmosphere was welcoming. Had to leave to catch a bus but would have gladly stayed all night. Recommended.

This pub has recently been taken over by a new landlord and the beer is much improved since my earlier comment. Top marks for effort, shame about the Pedigree.

Because there is always a good few of customers drinking the local Predigree it has a good throughput and is threfore always a good pint. When this is the case guest beers are not needed. Pleasant staff and landord. Shame it is not big enough to do catering.

This is a good pub for a quick pint and plenty of slow ones. Despite there being only one room, its actually four with rare, invisible partitions. The bar has a the world's smallest tv screen, and there's table football where locals live out the unlikely dreams of Burton Albion. The brothers who run the place are friendly guys and the beer always tastes lovely.
londinieres - 9 Sep 2006 20:25 of my acquaintances calls this the Star Wars bar on account of it's clientele although he continues to drink there. The one room pub has a sort of central bar and is well appointed. Sadly the only beers on offer are Marston's Pedigree, (bland and unappetising) and Bank's Original, (or mild as it used to be called). It seems that the idea of a guest ale has been forgotten. Pleasant and friendly but if you enjoy a good pint there are better places.
