Although there was an impressive choice of beers, with two or three that I hadn't come across before as well as some usual suspects such as Doom Bar and Pale Rider, this is not my sort of pub at all, with internal walls having been removed to give a large Wetherspoons-like area and an impersonal atmosphere far removed from a "real" pub. Beer was around £2.60 a pint, which compares unfavourably with most pubs around here that I tried.

Ordered some food here and I would definitely say it was well below par. Ordered mushroom and Stilton. it wasn't what I expected it to be, I got lots of little mushrooms with a very hot peppercorn sauce over the top which was really garlicky, overly powering! all this was on top of Garlic bread slice. it wasn't very nice at all. I ordered for my main. Peppered chicken with penne pasta. Which came out as pasta with bits of chicken in it. with the same exact sauce I had as my starter, I was very disappointed and I complained about it and was never offered an alternative or an apology. I also ordered my daughters Steak to be well done, which came out pink.
