E TA left this review about Rifle Volunteer

Very much a local pub, this Victorian backstreet house has been knocked through, modernised and carpeted, removing all traces of its original architectural charm. The effect is not pleasing, and it's made worse by the dire carpet and inappropriate floor tiles. All that aside, the welcome was genuine from staff and customers alike, while the regular cadre included famillies. There is a pool table and gaming machine, but these were not in use. There were 2 ales on, Deuchres and Courage Best, neither of which was on best form, but both of which were drinkable. It isn't the best or worst pub locally, but it is a decent pub and we should be grateful that it is still open when so many similar establishments are closing down. The lively local spirit, which includes charity fundraising, more than makes up for the lack of style in the building and I would be happy to come back to see whether the beer has improved.
