Nice pub with 5 ales on when I called including Proper Job and Gale's Seafarers ale. I went for the latter and it was excellent. We sat out the front in the sun and watched the world pass by for a while. I would happily call again.

There are six handpumps here, with only five being clipped and the sixth with a little "coming soon" sign hung on it, without indicating what was coming soon - another ale presumably. The five on were Doom Bar, London Pride, Wadworth 6X, and the St Austell pair of Tribute and Proper Job (£1.65 a half). There are menus on all the tables of course. Sandwiches are £6+, with chips an extra £2.79; the mature cheddar and bacon beefburger is £10.29. But on weekday lunchtimes they do main courses at £6 a go, with things like a classic beefburger and baked lasagne included - and include chips!

When I sat down in here I thought that it had the corporate, hotel lounge look, that fell somewhere between a Stonegate and Ember Inns pub. Well, it is now a Stonegate pub, and clearly some of its ambience as an Embers Inns pub remains from the time when it was under that branding. The pub itself is clearly an old country pub, but it no longer has anything that you would associate with a country pub other than the low ceilings, and large fireplace. There's now a servery in the centre of the place with several dining and drinking areas wrapped around it. Some are carpeted, and some are bare-boarded; one has the clear look of a dining area (though I didn't see any "wait to be seated" signs); one or two are vaguely pub-like; while others have the look of a hotel lounge. Something for everyone then. Furnishings are a mix of tall tables/tall stools, normal tables and chairs, and armchairs.

There's outside seating to the side of the pub - a beer garden even - and a car park at the back. It's got a predictable corporate feel to it, but the beer's reasonably priced, as is the food as long as you visit during a weekday lunchtime. It's not one to seek out for the beer, but sitting outside on a nice day would be a pleasure.

Previously The Chequers, this Stonegate pub is well described by Steve, below, though I'm pleased to say the smell of vinegar he describes has gone. The emphasis has switched back to beer and there are seven ales on draft: Pride, Deuchres IPA, Harvey's Gold, New World, Hogs Back TEA, Warringtons and Razorback. Two 'craft' beers also on, New Moon and Hophouse. Food was good, although mass-produced, and they also offer Sunday roasts. The gaming machines are a bit annoying, but the staff were friendly. A good evening venue if you've time in hand.

This is a large Ember Inns pub with an island bar that is surrounded by ample seating areas. The usual décor and yellow/orange lounge glow is in attendance along with the cheaply priced food. I was served a decent pint of Guinness by a polite member of staff and after a quick walk around the bar I noted that Adnams, Ordinary, Pride, Abbot, XB and Ringwood forty-niner were all available alongside the usual draught suspects.

The crowd inside the pub seemed to mostly consist of families and an older crowd who were partaking in a couple of beers after eating a meal. The demographic seemed to change somewhat in the large tree lined paved garden as the average age dropped by about 30, but there was still a relaxed atmosphere.

The locals at this pub are obviously very clever as it is the first that I have come across that advertises two quiz nights a week which happen to be on Sundays and Tuesdays.

I’m not a big fan of these places as I prefer a traditional boozer that doesn’t smell of vinegar, but as things go this one is worth a stop off if passing.

Large open plan pub with the emphasis on food.It also had a good range of real ales with the "Landlord"being in good form.
