Paid a visit on Sunday to have a meal with my wife, to recover from a shopping session.

There are 10 hand pumps at the bar, split across two banks, but the only available real ales were Doom Bar, Nicholson's Pale Ale, Robinsons Dizzy Blonde and Sharp's Atlantic, leaving three unclipped. I have been before and remember the real ale selection being better, or my memory could be deceiving me. It's always possible they had been busy over the weekend and run out of a few. There were a few better than average keg options including RedWillow Wreckless and a couple of ciders. The cider I had was rather nice.

I went for one of the Sunday roasts and having struggled to decide between beef and the ham hock, my decision was made for me when I ordered at the bar and was told there was no ham hock left. The meal was delicious; my wife had the Nicholson's burger which she reported was also very nice (and looked huge). There is also a chalk board with a list of pies, with tick boxes to indicate which are currently available.

The pub was not that busy but there were a few customers in. Service was quick and there were enough staff to cope. The meals arrived quickly but not suspiciously quickly. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the food in here and it was pretty good value; only a bit more expensive than a Wetherspoon meal but so much better. I'd happily come back again.

This is Nicholson's pub and to be honest it's not very good. It looks like it used to be a bank but previews say it was a library and its a huge disappointment for a Nicholson's conversion. 10 handpumps with 5 ales duplicated. Lots of pillars inside the single room I was in and old pictures of wherever. I found it all a bit vacuous and dull.

Hi Rob,

Really sorry to hear you have had problems getting servd quickly it's certainly not something i enjoy hearing. we do get extremely busy on saturday evenings and it is difficut sometimes to be able to meet the demand staff wise so i genuinley apologise. If you would like to call in again soon then i will stand you a pint of one of our new summer range of ales ( some of which are really fantastic ). Just ask for Chris when you come in. Hopefully i can make up for your previously dissapointing visit.

kind regards

Chris (Manager at The Bank).
