This largish corner pub isn't too bad but it ain't great either. Dizzy Blonde was the only cask available. Its a bit similar to bare floored Irish pubs but without the faux Oirish stuff. However it is a proper pub and with the proliferation of modern day bars its nice to see.

This could be a really good pub, but sadly at the moment it isn't. As you enter there's a pool table on a raised area to the right. The bar is straight ahead. There's an interesting gantry with loads of bits & bobs. There are leather sofa's and some dining style tables and chairs. There's also a dartboard, but it's difficult to see how you could use it without some removal men being involved. There are 3 handpumps on the bar, but only Black Sheep bitter was available. My pint was in decent condition to be fair. The 2 barmaids were much more interested in talking to a couple of regulars rather than serving a stranger though. Spend a few quid on a spruce up, give it a good clean and add an interesting beer or two and it will be streets better.
