ened, seems pretty decent. Had a pint and a meal both good. Was quite busy on a Saturday night, would've stayed longer but for some reason half way through the evening they turned the music up so loud you couldn't speak over it so moved on.

Nice garden, nice to see its been trimmed a bit of late though the dozen or so 'No eating Chips signs are a bit OTT.
Beer is generaly okay(pint I had last week tasted a bit odd) with a choice of two or three real ales. Agree its a pub that doesn't know what it is or who its catering for. Also service is sometimes lacking, ordered a coffee, 'we'll bring it out for you' ten mintes later, no drink, had to be chased up twice.

The owners are two of the rudest people i have ever met, talk about a chip on your shoulder,i am surprised they have any customers at all.The pub is meant to be a live music venue.on a recent visit(first and last) the band that were playing were one of the worst i have ever heard.my ears were ringing for two days after.The bar staff are sloppy and as for real ale,i took one sip and thought i was going to throw up. the whole place is a shambles and will be very surprised if it is still open in a years time. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS.

Donít visit this place at all costs, however inviting it looks. The guy who runs this place Ian is the rudest person I have ever met. When I complained about the food he said there was nothing wrong with it and refused to take it back to the kitchen. The steak was full of fat and gristle. I ordered my steak medium rare and it came back like it had been cremated, the chips soggy and the frozen peas over cooked to the point that they were inedible. I donít want standards Ian and Dee are used too, but itís not up to the extortionate price they charge for this terrible food. My wife had the minted lamb chops, again they were cremated and the red wine sauce turned out to be gravy with what appeared to be red wine vinegar mixed with it. My wife was also very ill for 2 days vomiting and many visits to the toilet after eating only a small portion of her meal. When it came to the bill I flatly refused to pay and Ian got very abusive and violent, it was only the threat of calling the police that he was led away by Dee and we were left to leave. This is an absolutely terrible place, something I thought you only see on the TV. This couple should be removed from the pub trade.

A grand old coaching house with a turbulent history.....
This is a Banks/Marstons pub and carries guest ales form their extensive portfolio. Generally OK beer. My view is that the pub isn't sure what it is catering for, however it is good to see real ale drinkers catered for.
