The food is shockingly bad value. Top prices for ordinary food. My black pudding and scallops starter tasted great but there were only two tiny scallops and two pieces of black pudding that were the size of a 5 pence piece. The cost of the starter £9. The duck in my main meal was over cooked. We bought a bottle of Red which was one of the most expensive they had but didn't taste that great and gave my wife and I a hangover the next day. The pub was ok but don't go to the restaurant. I would rate the PUB as a 6 and the restaurant as a 2.

First visit since it has re-opened and to be honest its almost the same as when it closed i.e. full of families even on a Saturday evening at 6.30pm.

Large dining room now at the back of the bar running along the main road, there were a few couples eating in there.

The bar area was busy but as I said above there were a lot of families in. I'm not opposed to this but I am opposed to kids running wild while I'm trying to have a pint!

4 ales on the pumps with a couple of seasonal offerings, I choose one of these in the form of Black Sheep’s Blitzen @ 4.0%. A very nice pint even though it tasted stronger than the 4.0% abv.

The pub has been improved internally and externally, the dining room is impressive, the decor is clean and crisp but please cut back on families and kids on a Saturday night.

As I’m local I will give it another try soon as it at least deserves that for the beers alone.

Shut pending new owners. I'd heard that it had gone down hill, and recent postings confirmed this. My earlier experience had been as below.

Fortunately you have the General Napier (Old style backstreet boozer), the most wonderful Blythe, and even the Railway Telegraph, in easy walking distance.

Fairly local pub to me but have only been 4 times since it re-opened several years back.

The reason I've only a few times is that every time I visit there is a combination of kids running about, posh pushy parents and bad bar staff.

The beer has been fine, a tad on the dear side for the area but I can take that...I don't however accept poor staff and attitudes on every visit.

Until I hear this has changed I won't be back.

No pleasantries from the young lady who served me.
Very sorry to have bothered them and want be returning.

After this experience, hopefully the location of this pub, on the Sth. Circ and an unwelcoming neighbourhood will be its undoing.
