A traditional style of pub just opposite Tesco and a handy last stop before the catching the train, it consists of a fairly long and narrow single room with the bar counter in the middle. Décor wise it is quite conventional with carpeting on the floor, red velvet curtains at the windows and some dark wooden balustrade. There were a few high stools at the bar and small tables and chairs elsewhere and a couple of guitars were affixed to the wall at one end.

On the night we visited there was karaoke in progress with some of the punters being actually quite good, and some not so good. One guy was getting quite in to it, going down on one knee and serenading a couple of ladies at a table, which must have been slightly embarrassing for them as they apparently did not know him. The barmaid Vanessa was absolutely brilliant – friendly, chatty, bubbly, attractive….and completely mad. Definitely an asset to the pub.

Food wise the men offered a selection of basic pub grub dishes such as Burger & Chips, Scampi & Chips, Steak Pie & Chips, Fish & Chips (can you see a theme here?) or Sausage & Mash, and these were mostly priced at around a fiver. A blackboard advertised Sunday lunch for £5.99.

Beers on tap were Ruddles Best and Butcombe, whilst a third pump appeared to have run out. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold and Symonds Founders Reserve.

Great pub and it's a pleasure to be asked how one wants their real ale served; "Much of a head Sir!"
Friendly landlord and staff and cool locals. Like it!!!

I've visited this pub many times and I like it here. Some good friendly locals and decent beer, I've always found the landlord to be quite fussy about his beer and would always replace one that he thought wasn't up to scratch.

The pub itself is quite old and some parts are a bit worn out but at least it's authentic. It has benches out the front and a small garden at the back (the front can get quite windy in winter).

Mmmmmmm, beer cloudy and lager flat, perhaps cleaning the lines and keeping the cellar at the right temperature could help!!!!

Nice layout, plenty of tables and chairs for the locals to use as weapons when the somewhat tense atmosphere explodes.

Pool balls stop rolling on the table when an unknown face walks in.

Could have been an off day when I visited but I won't be ging back to find out!

Didn't seem much atmosphere when I visited, but it was quiet on a Tuesday night. Just a couple of guys sat up at the bar.
Blackthorn & Thatcher's Gold on tap.
