It was heaving in the Froddington Arms with a boisterous karaoke crowd when I visit on a recent Friday evening. The karaoke was set up around to the left of the bar where a dartboard and pool table are located. I didn’t venture over this side of the bar, which is why I missed the bank of five hand pumps. No problem though as I was on the Amber Nectar! Plasma screens for showing live sport are located throughout the pub. Out the back is a beer garden. I’m not a fan of karaoke so wouldn’t return on a Friday night, but I would pop in to have another look if passing at another time.

On entering from the street corner door I saw no handpumps along the length of the bar however perseverance pays and around the far corner was a welcome sight of a bank of five, Doom Bar, Spitfire, Bishop's Finger, Whitstable Bay Pale Ale plus Old Rosie cider. The WB was a good value £3.00 which compared rather well with the £5.10 I was mugged for in The Wave Maiden earlier, albeit for a different beer. The pub wraps around in a kind of U shape with the bar the central feature. One return had a pool table, the other a dartboard. Carpeted apart from the pool area, banquette and chair seating with a couple of booths in front of the bar divided by modern coloured glass screens. The TV had just finished showing the Tyne/Wear derby and rather loud rock music was blaring out, much to the entertainment of a small group of 60something blokes who had clearly been on the sauce all day. The pub was rather boisterous but good humoured. Décor included an old "Public Bar" etched glass panel, framed, a few PFC team pictures and pennants and the bar front is partly painted a particularly garish shade of purple. The presence of lighting and speakers indicate that live music must be on the menu. No indications of food, talking of menus, but it was Easter Sunday tea time.
Not a bad spot overall, if a bit loud, a reasonable ale range well priced, even more so if you use the loyalty scheme, buy 9 get the 10th free.
