Moby Duck left this review about The Bacon Arms

This is what amounts to little more than a hotel bar albeit reasonably sized. Three handpumps on the bar with only Pedigree available in the cask stakes, a beer I historically have never liked but went with a half which to be fair was kept rather well but the beer itself bareley distinguishable from any other Marstons spawned brown beer.
Not my kind of place but a ticks a tick.

A long thin hotel bar ranged across the whole front of the building. Entering front the street there is a vestibule with seating then to the left the bar proper with tables and chairs then moving deeper there is the counter to the right and a vertical drinking area to the left, further on is some bench seating. The hotel is owned by Marstons so not unnaturally the beers are from them , Ringwood and Jennings with a Pedigree clip reversed on the three hand pumps, fairly average in taste as well. There is a large dining room beyond the bar at the back of the hotel.

Large Marstons pub with accommodation, some of which appears to be old converted stables to the rear. Three ales on from the Marstons-owned range (Ridgewood Best, Jennings Cumberland, Pedigree). My Cumberland was in good shape. Huge interior with copious amounts of (completely unoccupied) dining space, plus function and games room. Bar area (and the décor in general) a bit dark and dingy, needs a little brightening-up. I visited on a quiet Sunday and the atmosphere matched. Largish rear patio area was a decent spot to relax. WiFi available. Not exactly a destination venue but the beer was good enough for me to leave satisfied, if not exactly champing at the bit for a return.
