Soup Dragon left this review about Blue Brick Top House
This is a detached Marston's pub and eatery, with a patio area. It is a former Victorian hotel, called the Commercial, which was situated by the Round Oak railway station. It was renamed the Blue Brick, as amazingly, it is constructed of blue brick. It is an irregular shaped build, with stone windows - interesting features include the Gothic tower and trefoil window. The lower frontage is in stone and blue tile, with pedimented entrances. The interior is a soulless, open plan, irregular shaped room, with a conservatory. Much of the space is given over to the foody tables - I didn't eat so I can't comment on theat, but it was the usual Marstonsy type of menu. The room is in cream and green, with a few fireplaces. There is a side area with a pool table and a few dart boards. There are several TVs, which had sport on. There was no music. A few old photos are on the walls. The service was fine and the clientele, small but mixed. Beer; usual tap stuff with Banks's MILD and Bitter on handpull - I had the bitter for a change, it was fine. A fine building, with a generic interior - not one I would go out of my way for.

I've always found this place to be friendly and well kept. A nice drop of ale was available, and the gaffer knew his stuff.
