Blue Scrumpy left this review about Druids Arms

Greene King pub with a couple of drinking areas to the front of the pub near the bar and a slightly larger room at the rear.

Abbot & IPA are the real ales. The other 4 handpulls were clipped with Lilley's cider, which were all dispensed from boxes in a fridge - Cherries & Berries, Tropical Cider, Mango Cider & Rhubarb Cider.

It was quiet for a town centre pub. When we left, I don't believe there were any other customers remaining, unless they were in the outdoor courtyard.

A 10% CAMRA discount is offered, but only on the ales. A little disappointing overall.

Still as described below, this remains a lively local, unspoilt by its proximity to the main shopping area. The atmosphere was convivial, helped by robust banter from the young males and Dolly Parton on the jukebox, the latter helping us keep abreast of things as the TV was switched off. Two gaming machines entertained the more excitable clientele. Only one ale on, Abbott, which was in average condition. Craft ales were Level Headed Giant's Session IPA and Flint Eye lager, plus there was Amstel, Madri, Guinness and two Lillie's ciders. Food was standard GK fare at higher than average prices. A decent enough pub when in the town centre.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Druids Arms

Quite an interesting building, both inside and out, although some of the rustic 'old' wood may only date back to the days when this was (one of) the first Hogshead brand of pubs. However, features such as the main fireplace certainly add to the historic feel of the place. Outside seating available in the courtyard which can also be accessed by side alleyway (which has recently been opened up again). It did get rather rough at one stage, but the atmosphere has certainly improved again in recent years. As a Greene King house, I found IPA and Abbot plus the seasonal Old Spooky Hen and Starry Night (£3.50 less 30p Camra discount) on four of the six handpumps on this visit.
