Sadly this characterful pub has closed (September 2014). Reputedly likely to be turned into yet another bloody restaurant, +/- flats.

This is the most insalubrious establishment I have been in for a long time. Fairly empty despite it being a Friday night and staffed by some very unwholesome and cheesy guys, closest way of describing them is chav greasers. Regulars not much better. The brief period of time it took us to neck our drinks was like purgatory, and we were away. Yuck.

Evertime I have been here, I have had a good time. Little bit run-down and loos are pretty basic. Beer always good.

Friendly staff, good ale and cider which is well kept. Two drawbacks 1; you never know when it is going to be open and 2; make sure you've left before 9pm on a weekend when it transforms into a creche. This place could be a wonderful pub with some money spent on it, you do feel like you're going back in time as you go in, but they have live music and open mic nights occasionally but never advertise it which is a shame.

Just back from a night out in this place. My friend who has a medical condition preventing him from drinking alcohol was mocked by a group of chavs. Said group of chavs turn out to be very good friends with the barstaff, so that's alright then!? Toilets were apparently last cleaned during the middle ages. Decent selection of real ales. If you don't mind being taunted by a load of baseball cap wearing chavs with links to the bouncers / bar staff, then this might be an OK pub. Alternatively, if you like a quiet pint of real ale without having to put up with a bunch of abusive knobs, you might want to look elsewhere.
