A bit of a clean-up here (hooray) and a re-naming, but essentially remains as was. Three ales: Courage Best, Black Sheep Bitter and GK Old Nutty Hen (pretty good). Fair enough, quite busy on my Friday visit. Given the slide downhill of the Queens Head, it’s good to see this one open again for the thirsty commuter.

Reviews as Way Inn
May 2012
A recent re-visit found the beer selection to have evolved - TT Landlord, Longdog, Oakleaf Hole Hearted, GK OSH and. Abbot. The Longdog was good and Hole Hearted absolutely spot-on. However the interior is looking pretty grubby (eg the furnishings are getting very tatty) and the pub, never the most light/welcoming at the best of times due its position, feels a bit dingy and desperate, what with the lights not switched on and the lack of homely touches on a grey day. A coat of paint, some new upholstering and half a dozen sets of new light fittings really would do wonders. There’s at least one real fire on the go now so there’s potential. This could be as good (maybe even better) as the Queens Arms if management want it to be. Rated 7

November 2008
A pub that’s getting popular with the younger crowd and is also becoming well-known for its beer. There’s usually Abbot, Deuchars, Landlord and Palmers available and they are in pretty good shape. Quite a large interior, the inside downstairs I always find a bit dingy – it’s better up the steps as there’s a bit more natural light coming in. The beer garden is functional but well-done. The jukebox (decent selection) music is often pointlessly on the loud side, perhaps the landlord is deaf. The food available (posh pub grub with garnish, usually) is pretty good in my experience. Staff are usually pretty good as well. Overall, I'd recommend a visit here if you are in the town. Rated 8

Abbot Ale and Timothy Taylor are the main ales available. Appears to hold occasional music nights. Pub is large and never seems to get very busy here.

Many ales - as many as 6 at one time. Also the Jukebox is good fun.
