The refurb is impressive and the reconfiguration of the bar makes it easier to mange the queue and the new Management are a) much friendlier and b) know how to roster on enough staff (who actually know what they're doing) to meet demand at this popular pub. I'd encourage going back if you've had a bad experience in the past as you will be pleasantly surprised.

Annoying, slow and inattentive bar staff. Avoid.

Bit hit and miss this place. Tend to be in there once a week and it's certainly pleasant and inviting however very cavernous at the back and not what you'd call intimate. Decent pint of Ghost Ship but the bar staff can be absolutely shocking - No idea about what they're serving, very very slow and no queue management.

The garden is the most pleasant in the area and worth a trip to enjoy the rays. However, it can be a bit of a kids playground as children fuelled with sugary drinks are allowed to run wild whilst their parents look on, do nothing, and laugh at how cute their little cherubs are.

A nice venue in a great location with a solid selection of ales. Unfortunately let down by the bar staff. Went in during a quite period and although there were only four of us at the bar, the two staff still served people out of sequence (causing clear annoyance) and took twenty minutes to serve everyone.

I visited today, with a friend for the first time in a few months. Not great. I noticed with regret that they have TV screens showing sport again. A few years back they made a big point of closing and reopening with a different feel.
The barman, made no effort at all to see who was first at the bar, not even looking up, simply saying ' who's next' or ' anyone ready to order '. It was fortunate that despite being busy, everyone had the manners to take their turn. The first rule of a good barman is to know who is next in line.....
Rather slow in the food dept at clearing away used crockery/cutlery that was simply building up on a pair of tables positioned near the toilets.
