Corner pub with numerous different drinking sections. Cask ales are all from Butcombe - Original, Gold, Adam Henson's Rare Breed and a guest which was Club Tropic. I had the latter which was better than most Butcombe beers I've had before.

The interior felt quite dark, but perhaps that was the passing rain showers. There is an outdoor area to the rear with another exit onto Saracen Street.

My memory is struggling to fully recall my visit back in the day but it feels like things have changed a bit – certainly the clocks and porcine objects d’art have gone, so assume new ownership. Anyway, enter to an oblong room in neutral shades with a bit of slanted modern window where roof would have been. Up some steps to the bar which is off right. A bit more trad here with faux sodium lights, varnished wood panelling and exposed wood ceiling, presumably the floorboards of the room above. There's a bijou garden out back. A couple of TVs showing the Ashes to general disinterest. Four Butcombe cask on, the West Coast IPA was of interest and it came out surprisingly well (NBSS 3.5). Solid crawl fodder, I’d happily head back. Looks like things have taken an upswing since the last review a year previous.

A busy, bustling pub aimed primarily at younger folk and sports fans with a modern-meets-old interior. However five ales and a cider are available, sourced from local micros. My Old Walloper last visit was excellent. Darts and table football available, if you can get to them. Loads of Premier League club clocks, though oddly half were either stopped or showing the wrong time. There’s also a pub cat and fish tank. In addition, as expected, there are plenty of porcine objects d’art to be seen. I like it here and it should definitely be on the crawl list. Rated 8

As described below, it’s a bit of a pub parody, chaotic, cliquey and clumsy.  The staff were ill-prepared and didn’t seem to know what was going on.  In particular the barmaid knew very little about beer while the manager was just disorganised.  Still 6 pumps on the bar, four dry.  The one clipped Butcombe Rare Breed dispensed undrinkable sludge  which, the barmaid did eventually agree.  This was replaced with the other pump’s Liberation Gold, unusual in these parts and, to be fair, was in good condition.  The pop music was annoyingly loud, it was all a bit theme-park, certainly not as much fun as anticipated, and I wouldn’t include it on a crawl or come here for a few beers when there are much better pubs within scratching distance.
