Newish landlord in place; a friendly chap who seems to know his stuff. Minor decor changes - sofas out replaced by wooden tables which makes it more in keeping with the bare boarded "proper" pub feel of the place. Boltmaker, Pedigree, Brakspears (hooray!) and Hophead during my most recent visit. Brakspears and Pedigree both sampled and in fine shape. Now represents good competition for the excellent Rifleman which is nearby.

Very much a basic locals pub and although it has eight or nine handpumps only four beers were on suggesting they don't get the ale turnover to support the full compliment,my pint of Cottage Golden Arrow was fine though. Well described below I found the pub friendly enough but not particularly appealing.I would call in if passing but wouldnt go out of my way.

Located on Hampton Road, just a five minute or so walk from Strawberry Hill station, this is a reasonably sized pub with a large, U-shaped main bar area. A porch at the front of the pub takes you up a couple of steps into a narrow front section with the bar directly opposite. The horseshoe shaped servery has a compact bar back lined with some nice spirit barrels. To the right is a spacious seating area with plenty of button backed sofas which create quite a relaxed feel, somewhat out of kilter with the rugby theme on show, which includes several signed Australia shirts - a bit weird given the proximity of the home of English rugby. A TV was showing a muted Spanish football fixture and the décor was rounded out by a few bit of breweriana and a juke box. Over on the left hand side, there is a large bay window at the front with plenty of standard seating in front of it and a brick fireplace to one side, covered in horse brasses and stood underneath a huge mirror. There are a number of brewery mirrors on show, as well as a second TV screen and moving towards the left rear, more breweriana appears, as does a nice stone fireplace. There is plenty of additional seating back here and apparently a second room can be reached from this side, although I must've missed it. I did notice a door leading out to a very green looking garden, where a few punters were catching the last rays of the day. There were quite a few people in when I visited, but there wasn't much of an atmosphere, with most people glued to the TV screens whilst music played quietly in the background.
This was off-set somewhat by a decent ale line-up, which offered Banks's Cereal Thriller, Brakspear Bitter, Twickenham Redhead and Adnams Ghost Ship, with four more pumps left unclipped. A fairly mainstream keg range included Thatcher's Gold Cider. I tried a pint of the Cereal Thriller, having been offered a taster by the friendly barmaid, and I thought it was in reasonably good condition.
I quite liked the feel of this pub and thought it was a shame that the atmosphere was a bit flat on this occasion. The prospect of an interesting pint makes this a worthy addition to a crawl of the local area and I would happily return to see if things have livened up a bit.
