Update: I visit here more frequently since it has become an port of hope in a desolate sea. The exterior and interior haven't changed. They have pool and darts, as well as TV for the sport and they do food - which I haven't tried - so all the things people may want. Most important for me is that it now has 7 real ales, and I have never yet got a duff pint. Only criticism for me is that all 7 are often light beers, but hey! Definitely worth dropping into.
Sep 2009: A 1930s looking detached brick build, with beer patio

The interior is open plan and cream with wood panel in decor. There isnt much in the way of pictures or decoration. There are four areas within the pub; a dart area, pool area, bar area that is devoid of seating other than stools and a lounge area, with the traditional oblong tables and chairs. There was Sky TV (a big screen as well). Service was fine and it was quite well attended by a mixed clientele.

The Beer; usual tap tosh, with a decent enough Banks's smooth. On handpull there was Banks's Bitter and Everard's Equinox as a guest.

A little out of the way for me, but worth a visit - kind of place i would go for one, rather than all night.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Bridge

Roadhouse in a prominent position beside a large roundabout; with rather off-putting signage that does, however, mention real ale several times. The interior comprises one large bar with limited seating, but there are alcoves for the dartboard in one corner, the pool table in another and a modest lounge area at the back. Basic decor throughout. Fortunately, cask beer was indeed available from four of seven handpumps when I visited: Banks's Amber, Castle Rock Elsie Mo, Oakham Citra and Salopian Vanishing Point (£3.00).

Entry in the 2017 Good Beer Guide.

It doesnt look much from the outside and the signage is a little off putting. If you are going to advertise Real Ale, you don't really want a logo for Coors and Carling on the same hoarding.

However, looks can be deceiving.

Huge interior - cracking juke box (rare Ian Dury anyone?) and six real ales on. A couple from Banks but around the bar corner, I found a Otter Summer Light - a Pale Ale never before found. And I thought I knew all the Otters.


The food was also fantastic. A simple home made burger and chips but at a price where you wonder how they make a profit.

A great experience and a reminder not to judge books by their covers.

Pleasant pub in Hightown area, short walk from station. Open plan with comfortable seating and stools, its a little bit of a local feel rather than a pub trying to capture passing trade for the food. But it is friendly, though I have a certain bias as it used to be my local. Pool table and Sky TV, though careful for any clash with football losing out to live entertainment.

Occasional live music, they now appear to have added a second, more unusual guest ale - Brew Dog The Physics when I visited. Outside seating at front by main road, or the smoking area next to the car park.

Worth a visit if in the area
