Blackthorn _ left this review about Sam's Bar & Grill

Formerly a Wadworth’s pub know as the Major from Glengarry, it was shut for some considerable time and has now had an extensive makeover. It’s a good sized pub split in to three different areas, with the bar counter on the back wall of the centre room. There is also a terrace and decking at the front of the pub.

The central bar area has a varnished wood floor whereas there is carpet elsewhere, but other than that the decor is broadly similar. The colour scheme is a very pale shade of brown and there is painted wood panelling on the lower part of the walls. To the left is a room with a pool table and darts board. There was also a plasma on the wall, although this was not in use. A number of mirrors branded with spirit logos adorn the walls. To the right is an area that looks to me more geared up for dining, with a good array of tables and chairs. There is a large photo of an old car filling one wall, and some flock wallpaper elsewhere. There was some white tiling around the bar that was reminiscent of a public lavatory.

The food menu looked to be cheap and cheerful, and was divided in to sections such as salads, burgers, grills and classics. Most of the main courses seemed to be around the £6 mark. Beers on tap were Doom Bar, Directors and Gem. Ciders were Blackthorn, Strongbow, Thatcher’s Dry and Thatcher’s Gold.

It’s good to see this place re-open again at long last, although it doesn’t really have anything in the way of character that’s going to draw you back. And the change of name is a little disappointing, I always thought the Major had a nice historical ring to it.
