A nice community pub close to Gainsborough Trinity FC’s ground. I was informed it was a Marstons pub but thankfully only their version of Jennings Cumberland was on the bar along with Bradfield Farmers Some Old Guff and Woodford’s Wherry across the six pulls. The Wherry was very drinkable if not outstanding. Ex-GBG and recipient of several local Camra awards, I’d say yes worth the walk out from town. Big screens each end showing 80s music videos when I was in. All in very good decorative order as the estate agents say and has a charming pub dog.

This review from my visit to the Gainsborough for a football game in late January 17.

Close to the football ground and on the outskirts of the town, this pub appears in the GBG with this being the only reason I visited.

A pleasant welcome from the barmaid as I looked at the 6 hand pumps. Slightly disappointed that they were all national brands but good to see a choice none the less. My pints of Old Golden Hen and 6x were both on good form.

Large pub with plenty of seating on both sides of the bar. Large wall mounted TV in each area which were both showing different live football games.

Pretty busy with blokes watching the games on tv and getting ready for the Gainsborough match.

Decent enough pub.

Recently taken over and in the capable hands oif Dave Andrews. He has upped the beer sales by threefold since he has taken over. As well as beers from the marston portfolio he does get guest beers on as well. My only problem (& I've told him this to his face) is the price of the beer. It's too dear. We are a small town not a cathedral city!!!!!!!!!!!!!
