Now closed and boarded up. Locals seem more concerned with it not being a shop than it re-opening as a pub. Had a few issues with motorised undesirables which hasn't endeared it to the neighbours.

It's still an old dump but they seem to be doing the beer right....

Big, imposing pub on the junction. A fair amount of trepidation as we went in - there was some ramshackle DIY hut in the garden, whilst the interior was pretty ropey, with a broken window and a severe case of nicotine-tinged paintwork and a carpet that hadn't seen better days since 1954. So we were pretty surprised to see a couple of ales on (Brakspear and Hobgoblin) and even more stunned to find that the Hobgoblin was very very good indeed. A quick explore found a function room, quizzer and telly. With a bit of TLC, this place could work well.

I'll be back again on the strength of the ale quality, but I couldn't really recommend it as a pleasant drinking experience.
