Quinno _ left this review about The Tom Hoskins

Located down a less-than-promising street lies this fabulous local. Eight pumps with a mish-mash of five ales (M&B Brew 5, Tetleys Dark Mild, Castle Rock Harvest Pale, GK IPA and one I forgot to note). My Dark Mild in good shape and at £1.15 ludicrously cheap. Popped up for second beer and some snacks - four quid for a half, a cob and packet of pork crunch, fantastic value (I initially mistook the cheese and tom cob for ham – the barmaid offered to make me a ham one from fresh, unprompted). The Castle Rock slipped down a treat. Pretty busy, the clientele were mainly mature punters. Interior is well done out in a cosy manner with a number of different drinking areas including a comfy padded banquette pew room with the football on. Door to rear leads to barber shop (!) and in that same area there’s also a fake shop window advertising raffle prizes. A notice was up about joining the pub darts team though I didn't spot a board. Cloud WiFi available. One small downside was that the gents smelt like a badger corpse had been stuffed behind a radiator. This is a fabulous little pub and well-worth planning a special journey out of the city centre for.
