A two bar community pub that to me felt a little sterile although my visit was at a quiet time.Three beers on at the time of my visit, Fullers ESB and Olivers Island along with a beer from Redwood Brewery I cant recall the name of. This is a cask marque pub and as I have constantly found ,the beers with this tag seem overly chilled, this was the case with my Olivers Island and so lacking in taste as Quinno found with his beer on his visit and like him I was not overly impressed with this pub.

Re-opened after a period of closure.

October 2007
Went in on the recommendation of the Good Beer Guide but wasn't overly impressed. My Loddon was freezing and not brilliant. The inside is set out over two bars. There's a pool table, darts and SKY in the public bar, whilst the lounge has plenty of reading material scattered around. The place seemed very tired. We didn't really feel welcome either and I had no wish to settle down for a session. Perhaps it was a bad day. I'll try it again at some point if it reappears in the next GBG. Rated 5
