As described, it’s a single bar GK town pub, though there is a basement bar which opens occasionally. The most interesting architectural feature is an ornate fireplace which has been marred by inclusion of a modern insert. There is a TV screen which was off. Staff are sloppy and immature, and there is no real atmosphere. Food is the standard GK mass produced fodder selected from a fixed laminated menu. Ales were GK IPA, Abbott and Greencoat Boy’s Best Bitter (3.9ABV), whatever that was. It’s a functional pub but by no means the best in the area.

GK pub with no real ale of any strength. This could be a good pub with some decent ale, alas in its current guise I will not be returning.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Greencoat Boy

Quite a nice looking pub, with some outside seating which can be quite pleasant on a summer weekend when you haven't got so much traffic roaring past. Inside, the 'L'-shaped bar is a bit smaller than you might expect so if busy the best bet (if available) is to sit in the raised area in one corner. However, there is also a basement bar (which I have never visited). Pride, Doom Bar and Bombardier (£3.54) available on handpump, with Westons Traditional Scrumpy off and Adnams Explorer 'coming soon'. One of the better Taylor Walker pubs in the area.
