In here last Saturday just after noon and very busy with about 30 present.
It is quite smart with a mixture of high and low tables. piped music is playing.
Service is good.
6 hand pumps but one is blank. Others are TT Landlord and Boltmaker, Old Spekeled Hen, GK IPA and a local beer from the Squirel Brewery which I tried and very nice indeed it was for £3.20 a pint.

The takeover is now finally complete as is the refurbishment.
Oh, and the pub has now been renamed The Waterside Inn.

Six hand pumps at the bar; TT Landlord, Black Sheep bitter, GK IPA, Old Speckled Shite (sorry, I mean Hen), Summer Lightning and Wychwood's Hayburner (which unfortunately was sold out - the uncommon ones always do). Tasters are available from pre-drawn beer in bottles in front of pump clips.

Food choice seemed somewhat wacky. A few favourites and some not so traditional.
Taste, presentation and price was reasonable.

A couple of staff were moaning that they had been on duty early that morning, had not had a break lunchtime (food or fag) and were both working through to the end of the evening shift. Blimey.

Overall, it is not a lot different from the previous owners.
I would like to see more uncommon beers, but more common pub grub. And a bit of atmosphere would also help.

Might be some time before my next visit.

The Navigator is now run by the Stonegate pub company.
The three real ales along the front of the bar happened to be in my top three beers list.............for the worst.
Greedy King IPA, Fullers London Pride and Sharps Doombar.
Luckily, a pump on the side of the bar was serving Wychwoods Hobgoblin.

Food okay and cheapish. My steak, supposedly cooked to medium, was served rare to raw.
Staff were pleasant.

Sometime in the future Stonegate might change the name of the pub.

Quiet for a Tuesday evening.
6 hand pumps with a decent choice of ales.
Jennings Cocker Hoop, Hobgoblin, Boon Doggle, Crag Rat, GK IPA Gold and Doom Bar.

I chose the Crag Rat, unfortunately it was not on.
I wish barmen would remove pump clips from unavailable beers.
