A detached cream rendered pub, with front patio

The interior had two rooms, but the lounge was in darkness. The bar was in red and white, and had much crammed into the space - pool table, dart board, TV (not on) and a heavily used juke box. There was a collection of footy shirts above the bar itself and a few prints and mirrors on the walls. The service was fine, the clientele mixed locals it seemed.

Beer; no real ale all keg stuff with a decent enough M&B MILD

A standard enough place really, sadly lacking in a real ale, but i was happy to have visited it

Form the outside, this looks like a large 'council house' style building, rendered in a creamy yellow colour. It looks a little 'rough and ready'.

There are two rooms, the small front bar with a pool table and a lounge to the rear. On the Thursday I came in, the lounge was closed and in darkness.

There were only four other customers in when I came in, but others came in while I supped my beer.

There are no real ales and no taps for real ales. Its the usual stuff, but they did a smoothpour M&B Mild. I had a couple of pints of this and it was perfectly drinkable.

I felt quite comfortable in this pub, but I wonder what it would be like on a Saturday night. I would come back here.
