I must have the power of doom when it comes to crap pubs. Looking back, 4-5 of my lowest rated pubs are now closed, dead, and buried. This one now makes it 5-5. Closed and boarded up. Flats to come?

Another coat of paint just proves you can't polish a turd. Don't get me wrong. The pub itself isn't that bad. Its the punters that need culling. If you are into mass produced fizzy near frozen cat urine this is the place. On the other hand if you enjoy actually drinking beer that you can taste. Avoid like the plague. The regular clientele look like they are straight out of a National Front recruiting poster. Inbred Pikey central.

Nasty racist Hell hole, frequented by dirty old men, prostitutes and extreme chavs. Need I say more!

What a transformation!! Used to have the odd pint in passing before it was tarted up a few months back, now im a regular. The decor makes such a dfference, feels friendly and comfortable with a good atmosphere. The other regs are friendly and you can have a chat n a laugh with most of them or use one of two very nice POOL tables - i think they make me play better! The bubbly landlady has pulled out all the stops to make the place fun and lively, which it is now. A nice clean and crisp pint always by the friendly n efficient staff. Cheap between 12-6 aswell. Cant knock just oer 2 quid a pint. A lot of pubs dont have sky as its too expensive but the BIG SCREEN for the footy is a bonus. Its got eveything i want in a pub. 8 or 9 outta 10. Well done Sarah!

Not the best, but a very good place to drink and socialise; good atmosphere, great staff. Booze is cheaper then some of the other pubs in the area, live entertainment regularly and a pool tornament every wednesday. The local punters themselves are generally friendly, so long as your not overtly rude or insulting (much like everywhere else really). Overall, I think this pub is one of the few good, independent pubs in the area. 9/10

No it's not perfect, however unless you want every pub to turn into a lifeless weatherspoons consider reading the following...
The Duchess has a new Land Lady that has put alot of work into the running of the pub in order to create a possitive drinking environment. Whilst she has succeeded in removing the low life drug users and the trouble makers, she has'nt unfortunatly been able to get rid of the bad label. This unfortunatly means no new punters are coming in to a place where they would be welcome to drink and enjoy. The more profits the pub makes the better it will look and the better it will be for all. I must emphasise my point by saying it's not that bad and why not show your support before yet another pub gets shut down and turned into a commercial weatherspoons!!!

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. FULL OF NEANDERTHAL, THICK RACISTS! One of the worst pubs I've ever had the misofortune to drink in...EVER! Landlord and clientele are extremely rough and rude. Heard more than a few racist comments in the first ten minutes of being in there. Probbbly due to it's proximity to the-thankfully now closed-BNP book shop. Decor is absolutely disgusting and the place looks like it's falling apart. Beer quality was poor.

Seems to have had a clean and clearout of the dead wood. Staff very friendly. No real ale but Whitbread on a fizz tap that was actually drinkable. Still a rough and ready pub, but a far cry from the sh*t pit it was 6 months ago.

Take back my last comment. The new management went off with takings and stock, now there is another manager, that seems to drink more of the stock than watching his so called staff (tall bloke with wandering hand in till problem while dishing out freebies to his mates and serving up to local junkies).
This pub needs to be pulled down, so the local sniff heads have to go elsewhere..
Mind you, its open to the early hours of the morning, literally up to approx 7 am where you can still get a drink if you are as said, a sniff head...

Oh dear.
Rearrange the following
"badger's" "a" "rough" "behind" "as", and you will get the idea. No real ale. Peeling wallpaper. Dirty. Not the kind of place you would want to take anybody you actually liked to.

Under new management, about time this pub had a governor that actually is making a difference. Even the beer tastes better as well as a much better atmosphere………… With all the changes and weekend entertainment, I do believe it will become a place to go for all ages.
marshall_1965 - 31 Aug 2007 11:49
Not a great place. Has a bit of a bad atmosphere and is best just for swift one if your in a rush.
robfosters - 24 Mar 2007 18:46
O.K. for a quick pint, even better for a swift half, but best of all if you don't even go through the door.

A large locals pub with a definite atmosphere, The Duchess Of Edinburgh is perhaps okay for a quick pint, but absolutely nothing else. I popped in here a couple of times when I briefly lived in the area and admittedly didn’t witness any trouble, but I’ve heard a few stories, that’s for sure
