Worth calling in to eat, decent food at reasonable prices and a fair selection of cask ales.

Now known as Jacob's Inn and with gastro-style leanings, this pub borders just on the right side of prententiousness. Some of the trappings give off a 'Crazy Bear' air, and a stuffed fox replete with spectacles and the 70s-style Akai tape recorded are curious touches that just about work. The ale selection is on the OK side and one of the American craft beers went down well. Also, leaving the Gents' after applying hand cream to my mitts "apr├Ęs-pis" made me feel as if I were hatching a dastardly plan.

Visited for the second time this year, last weekend. Beers were all from the Marstons portfolio, there is evidence of other guest beers that have been available, but I have not seen any eveidence of them on the bar in my two visits this year. This may be a hang-over from a previous guest beer policy. Beer quality was perfectly acceptable.
Food was cheap and filling.
For a pub that promises a lot from the outside, the inside is a bit bland.
There were problems with both the gents and ladies toilets, (broken urinals and a lack of functional door locks and loo rolls).

Very quiet on a Sunday evening visit with only one other customer. We arrived to late for food (until 8 P.M.) but the menu looked good and we got the impression that most trade on a Sunday was for lunch. Strangely, there was only Banks' bitter on keg, but well kept pints of Ringwood Bitter were very welcome as was the polite and friendly service.

Went to this pub twice in two days. Had an evening meal both nights were meals were very good with good helpings.

A nice pint of ringwood bitter there were also Hobgoblin and another cask ale but i think it was Brakspear. But the Ringwood was very well kept so stayed on that.

The toilets were very clean and too.
