Much the same as Al's review below - the main difference being that there were no Zombies present. In fact we were the only customers. Still had Bombardier and Castle Rock Harvest Pale. The pale was fine and the service friendly. I would call again but there are bettor options nearby.

Oh dear. It looks like it might be a decent pub but in reality its a bit of a dive. A single square room and a pretty tatty one at that. I could only see 6 handpumps and only Bombardier and Castle Rock Harvest Pale were your rather dismal choices. There were 4 or 5 zombie-like creatures in on my afternoon visit.

I really wanted to like this palce with its grand looking exterior and mock Tudor design it looks that it could be a very pleasant place to have a drink, unfortunately i was very much mistaken. Upon entering the pub you are taken back by how much the interior does not match the old school look of the outside, something which is credited to Scottish and Newcastle who did a very dis tasteful refurbish about fifteen years ago. There is one square room with a center left bar and loads of open spaces with very few tables or furnishings of any kind. The pub was stone dead empty on a Tuesday evening. Ten hand pumps are bar, five on each side and o sole harvest pale pump sat lonely on one side. he landlady told me "ive not served any ale today" which should have been a warning sign so i asked to sample the harvest pale which was not off but void of any care and attention. I politely declined to purchase anything and walked straight out. This is a great shame as i can imaging in days gone by this being a very good pub but through lack of investment is visibly dwindling. I wonder how this stays open in this condition but am aware that a lot of Nottingham forest hooligans/supporters frequent here on weekends and match days and it has a reputation as somewhat of a skinhead pub so maybe they make enough on a weekend to keep them ticking. I wont be returning.
