Six ales on handpump on our visit, all of which were nationals. I went for the London Pride which was a good pint, whilst Mrs A went for Black Sheep. I found the pub to be well kept and comfortable. Quite funky in places with the purple and lime green colours as the main theme. An original feature here was the boot scrapes dotted along the bar plinths, something I haven't come across before.

Once the Tower Hotel, this has been the Goose since 1997. The three of us only came here as there's little choice locally and I can't add much to that below. Efficient and friendly enough staff, a decent pint of Adnam's Ghost Ship; the pub is Cask Marque accredited. Premium lagers a plenty. Very full on a Saturday night with a very mixed crowd, many of whom seemed to come from Eastern Europe. Football played on many screens including a giant projector, disco lights flashed and the music was only marginally quieter than a nightclub, making conversation hard.

Perhaps this place is quieter during the week, but it's a bit 'spoons for me and this is not the kind of place I'd set foot in out of choice. Serves a purpose to catch up with friends but I can't see myself coming here again.

Decent exterior to this street corner pub with some smart tiling ,and the entrance lobby also had some original green glazed tiles.The interior is open plan with two raised sections giving views through the large plate glass windows.Wooden floors throughout .With menus on every table it does have the feel of a chain pub ,but the small central bar had a reasonable selection of national real ale brands with Doom Bar,GK Abbott and IPA,St Austell Tribute,London Pride and an ok Hogs Back TEA.Ale pricing wasn't cheap however.There were two large drop down screens ,and when BT Sport or Sky Sports is being broadcast,the atmosphere may be less calm than when I walked in at 10.30am.Sadly even at this early hour the muzak was still annoyingly loud.
Functional without being memorable,it serves a purpose but as Rex says like a 'spoons but without their pricing.
