Recently refurbished, this used to be a fairly traditional and cosy pub in amongst many nearby bars, but has now lost something of it’s character to my mind, and whilst perhaps not a trendy bar, it doesn’t really have much of a traditional pub feel to it either.

It’s essentially all one open room, although divided off in to different sections wrapped around a central bar counter. There are sanded wooden boards on the floor whilst the paintwork is a mixture of fawn and mustard. Large windows make the most of the outlook at the front, and there are also further windows at the rear giving views over the rooftops. A raised area to the right had something of a shabby chic feel to it, with old floorboards on the wall in various painted shades, and a similar mismatch of wooden chairs. There was also an old stone fire-place and a couple of plasma screens dotted around, although these were not too intrusive – one was tuned off, and the other showing a football match but at a low volume.

Food wise, the menu appeared to offer a decent selection of pub grub dishes such as chilli con carne, sausage & mash, ham egg & chips, fish and chips, etc., and these were mostly priced around £9 - £10. There were also a number of flat breads, burgers, ciabattas and Polish specials, and the latter were presumably quite authentic seeing as most of the clientele appeared to be Polish. Food ordering times are rigidly adhered to, with one punter being turned away from the bar at 4:58pm – two minutes before they were due to start serving!

Beers on tap were Theakston’s Old Peculiar, Hobgoblin Gold and Deuchars IPA. Pedigree New World and their own Ship Ale both appeared to have run out. Ciders meanwhile were Scrumpy Jack, Symonds Founders Reserve and Strongbow Cloudy Apple, which is a new one on me.

Very nice typical english pub with real ales,we had Hopback "Summer Lightning" on our visit. up a steep hill but well worth the effort.ps, if you see a bloke named DAVE in there be careful he might buy you a pint.
