Popped in on the way over to Old Basing. For an estate pub I didn't think it was too bad. There's a nice sloped garden area outside, with pub itself situated at the bottom of the dip with the whole thing surrounded by a bright red wooden fence which looks like it came from a Lego set. The front bar was in a decent state of repair and quite light thanks to a whacky 70's-inspired window which seems to take up most of the nearside wall. Two ales on (Batemans and Courage) and whilst my Batemans was unremarkable I've had a lot worse in 'nice' pubs. Basic food on offer if I recall. Clientèle were gruff but unobtrusive. Never going to win awards but nonetheless a fair estate pub.
