Seems to be a change going on here, judging by what I saw compared to previous reviews. The Greene King livery has gone and there has been a half-done rebrand. In essence it's a fairly straightforward local here now; the front bar has stripped floorboards, a less-than-lovely cream and mushroom colour scheme, moulded ceiling, muted TV news, slightly over-loud music and pool table. Behind is a large room that wasn’t accessible on my late afternoon visit. Live music and quiz night advertised. Three pumps with ales two on; GK OSH and a surprisingly excellent Dark Star Hophead which the young friendly barmaid fussed over to make sure it was clearing properly. Also at £3.60 a fairly cheap option too. So I stayed for another. Started filling up around 5, so the locals are obviously on board. There’s potential here, with a bit more work on the interior being the priority.

This Greene King pub has a small seating area at the front that is made up of a mix of sofas, pew seating and more conventional tables. There is also a plasma screen for showing Sky Sports and the bar is stocked with standard draught products and has three hand pumps that were all drawing GK IPA. The back bar here is much larger than the front and it houses two pool tables and a DJ booth is found in the far right hand corner. Oddly there is a dartboard on the wall in the booth so the oche has a step up just before the board. There is a covered decked area out the back that leads to more seating on a paved area past a BBQ. This whole area is fenced in, but the lorries flying up the M1 a short distance away are very loud.

The only signs I saw of food were some advertisements for curry available to eat in or take away for £6.50 between 18:00 and 22:00 on Tuesdays through to Sundays.

The pubs that I have visited in this area have not been that great and this pub is no exception.
