Will Larter left this review about The Sneyd Arms

Although a little bit of a walk out of the town centre, this one is worth the energy expended. Appearance-wise it's a fairly ordinary roadside pub of a certain age in Brewers Tudor. Once inside there are two separate rooms, each with their own entrance (though it is possible to go from one to the other - via some steps - without leaving the building). The public bar was a bit noisy with some pop music at a too loud volume, so having ordered my beer I asked the landlord to put it on the other bar while I walked round. There are two hand pumps in the public and four in the lounge, which is a lot quieter and also more comfortably furnished, a bit of a throwback. The beers are nationally available brands; the half of Courage Directors I had was in superb condition. The landlord, ex-Leeds, was happy to talk about the demise of Tetleys and obviously knows his beers. (Sneyd is pronounced sneed, not snide or snaid.)

The Sneyd Arms is a stand alone pub that is situated just outside the town centre to the south west,the pub is also opposite the Waggon and Horses.
Once inside there was a long lounge to the left which went to the rear of the pub,this room had a low ceiling and was carpeted and had comfy bench seating facing the bar.
There was a smaller bar to the right which was fairly basic.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Bass which was a very nice drink,the other bers were Pedigree,Jennings Cumberland and Hobgoblin.
The pub was quite busy with a decent mixed bunch in on my late Saturday afternoon visit.
I was happy enough having a drink in this pub.
