So ended up revisiting as Desmond managed to home in on this after parking the motor whilst I was at the other end of town. Things have looked up actually – the six pumps actually had some interesting beers on from Two Cocks, West Berks, St Austell and White Horse. There was also a GK standard (Abbott) and a house beer, Stonegate Crawler (middling condition if not a particularly brilliant beer). Football was on but the place was quite quiet. It also seemed to have had a bit of a clean. An improvement!

July 2013
A pretty battered place with the entry lobby looking like something out of the Wild West, with lumps of plaster missing and scuffed paint work. The inside appears to be a warehouse conversion (high roof and exposed beams) and a small number of seats overlook the canal as does an unkempt smoking patio. Pool and table football to the rear, plus a multitude of big screens throughout. Over-loud modern chart music for a Saturday afternoon (the 'Newbury jukebox', as I would come to christen it during the day upon encountering it numerous times) and a preponderance of tattoos. Three ales (GK IPA, Pride and Bombardier – no evidence of the West Berks mentioned elsewhere) with the prices displayed on the pumps. The Bombardier seemed a little odd and a bit over-carbonated. I left to a cloud of smoky cooking oil enveloping the interior, probably never to return. Rated 4

Tired needs some T L C could be a good place if money was spent on it
