A pub which has greatly improved since my last visit about 4 years ago, possibly due to new management. The single-roomed high street bar remains noisy and full, but this is a good sign. The bouncers on the door were friendly enough, and they kept out many of those who used to bring this pub down. Saturday nights offer live music, the clientele is lively and represents a wide age range, there is a dartboard, the atmosphere is convivial and there are two ales on, both from Oakleaf. I had Hole Hearted which was in excellent condition. The positive changes have made this a pub worth visiting for a decent pint provided you don't mind standing.

Nooooooo! A conglomeration of styles seemingly thrown together by a team who couldn't agree on design. Beer is average, tables can be a little tacky. OK for the young flash geezers out to impress their peer group by flaunting their prowess at pool.
