Now a Slug & Lettuce, this pub is housed in a modern and unusual building being completely round and with a domed roof. It’s sandwiched between a Lloyds No. 1 and a TGI Friday’s which no doubt suits it’s target clientele but didn’t really do much to inspire me. It is however a convenient pit stop for the nearby theatre, cinema, shops, snow dome, etc.

Inside it appears smaller than might be expected, although it looks as though there may also be an upper floor which was closed off on a recent Tuesday evening visit. Seating is a mixture of tables and chairs towards the rear along with brown leather armchairs at the front, and a number of low sofa’s in front of the window. Decor wise there is little of any note, although the windows do cover most of the front wall which no doubt gives a light and airy feel in daylight hours. The ceiling was a pale lemon colour and the flooring was a mixture of slightly tatty looking dark wood strip and cream tiles around the bar. Numerous strings of fairy lights hung at the windows and adorned the air conditioning ducting, and there were a couple of plasmas up on the wall although all they were showing was Slug & Lettuce adverts.

The menu was extensive and divided in to numerous sections such as wraps, baguettes, salads, meat, fish, chicken, burgers, vegetarian, curries and so on. Main prices ranged between £6 - £10 or so, and there were also a couple of meals deals such as 2-4-1 curries on a Tuesday. My Open Chicken Pie with a Puff Pastry Case arrived alarmingly quickly and came with a sauce that was allegedly smoked applewood cheese and bacon although these flavours weren’t discernable. On the whole it was distinctly average – a generous portion I suppose, and there were bottles of branded sauce on the table which is better than those minuscule sachets or indeterminate makes of sauce served in small dishes, but it certainly wasn’t worth the £8.95 that it cost. If it had been about £3 less I’d have recommended it as a good value hearty meal. But it wasn’t, so I won’t.

Beers on tap were Greene King IPA and the local (from Olney) Hopping Mad Brainstorm, which to be fair, is much more than I expected in an establishment such as this. Ciders were a little disappointing with just Strongbow and Magners Golden Draught.

retreated to the upstairs bar along with a few others after a matinee at the nearby theatre only to be interrupted byu a load of foul mouthed yobs and yobettes... people suddenrly seemed to start drifting downstairs (suprise suprise) would have some potential if not for the local pond life

A quick drink here will not do any harm. Besides they have Hoegaarden on tap.
