The improvements are coming through....they have just been awarded CAMRA Pub of the Year 2015 for South West Essex (London) Region. Well deserved in my book.

Oh dear some very bitter words from Clare1970, if you are indeed a lady you are clearly one acting on behalf of the previous management.

Some of your comments are straight out of Laurel and Hardy. When and why exactly would a wife complain on behalf of her husband on a pubs review site?

If the beer was that bad then it was down to the previous management whose job it was to keep it right……and still your husband continues to “constantly” drink this “rubbish” there!!! Hilarious.

I was intrigued by the information you have gathered on the wine costs from the “staff” so I thought I would phone the guy personally whom you disrespect, and whom I have known personally for many many years. Funnily enough he has not had a single bad word with a soul in there and receives nothing but praise from the efforts him and his partner have put in. Oh, and I now KNOW what they pay for the wine.

Quite simply Clare1970 you are a liar on both points and your toxic motives have to be questioned.


The new wine is vastly better quality than that of which you have consistently, as a ‘regular’ drunk before (and stayed) plus they can’t buy in the good stuff yet as quite simply it won’t sell. The higher end (16 quid I’m told) isn’t selling, so you clearly aren’t buying it.

These new lads have turned the mess it was upside down in 2 short months. Guess they had to be ‘something of the night’ to extract the deep imbedded poison that took 25 years to plant its roots. Good luck to them. We are all enjoying a cleaner, friendlier pub that now actually has women in it that have been ostracised in the past.

If you don’t like this pub…Don’t drink there, stop moaning and cut out your poisonous propaganda. It’s not rocket science. Go to a poncy wine bar instead.

Leave it for us regulars who actually enjoy it.

Gaybarhogger agree with a lot of what you say. I am sure they are more aware than anyone of the issues. Let them do their stuff and see how the pub is in time. A touch more positivity may help though. Guessing you weren’t there on Sunday, very good atmosphere, beer was good and the roasties were certainly not from Iceland. Seems these guys can afford more than that !!!
