Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Guinea Butt
A Greene King pub, located on the edge of the central shopping area, and comprising a large 'L'-shaped room created from the original floor plan. Part-traditional / part-modern furniture and decor. The number of handpumps has increased again in recent years, with five of the six working on my latest visit, offering the 'house' Best Bitter, IPA, Old Speckled Hen, Abbot and the seasonal Rocking Rudolph (£3.20). Overall, whilst this can make a reasonably bolt-hole if the retail therapy all gets a bit much, I have had reservations about the staff attitude in here for as long as I can remember (and some of the regulars can also be a bit of a nuisance).

Steve C left this review about The Guinea Butt
The Guinea Butt is a large L shaped pub and in comparison to the other pubs in the area it was quite busy on the recent Wednesday afternoon I visited. Along with San Miguel a standard draught selection was available from the friendly bar staff and the three hand pumps were drawing Greene King IPA, Abbot and Roosters Yankee. Food is served and the mains range from about £5.50 to £7.50. I was going to plump for the Yankee, but went for a lager instead as the stench of vinegar from the food put me off the ale. I didn’t spot any TVs, but there was some low music playing in the background. Music and Djs are advertised for Friday and Saturday nights and on Sunday evenings there are open mic sessions. Also, there is a quiz advertised for every Wednesday evening.
There is some covered outside seating to the left of the pub and a beer garden to the rear.
I’d have no problem returning here if passing.
