For such a small pub in a seemingly rundown area away from passing trade there was an abundance of beers for the discerning drinker on my visit a couple of weeks ago. Five German beers were on draught along with several of the bottled variety and there were also five ales on which were GFB and Summer Lightening from Hopback Brewery, Sussex Pride from Weltons, Quadhop from Downtown and Sharp's Red Ale. I've travelled to a fair few pubs in my time and from my recollection I've only come across the Summer Lightening before so I think that some thought goes into the ale selection. Also, I've not seen Founders Reserve cider before which I would have lapped up if I wasn't on a crawl.

There are a couple of plasma screens which were both off whilst midweek football was on so I gather that there is no Sky Sports which makes me wonder why there are two screens. There was some background music playing which was so low that I wondered why it was on at all, maybe it is louder at the weekends – which I doubt.

There is a food hatch at the end of the bar, but nobody was eating during my visit – which was a good thing.

This isn't my ideal pub, but I can see that a lot of effort goes into it so my rating will reflect this.

Adnams, Summer Lightning, Harveys & Sharp's Cornish Coaster is a surprisingly good line-up round here, and the old pumpclips around the bar suggest that this was no fluke. Presume there must be a college nearby as there was a definite student vibe and started filling up at 16:00 predominently with 20something clientele. Yesterday was curry-night and the notice board also offered Sunday-lunch which sounded a cut-above regular roasts for £8. The kitchen is open and adjacent to the bar. Shame it's a little off-track with little else in the area appealing as crawl material.
