A bit more character than the Bull with a multi-area interior even if that interior is sat firmly in 1976 bar a recent lick of paint here and there (in a rather nasty colour scheme it must be said). Various takes on the Piltdown Man in situ, one chap at the bar I think took a dislike to me but he was so inebriated all he could do was wag a finger and slur something in a language that pre-dated cave painting. Only one ale, Banks Bitter in fairly grotty form. Skinhead Piltdown Man had a good taste in music, put some decent stuff on the jukey which was the only saving grace. Necked my half and left quicker than the Fake Sheikh. What a dump.

visited a few times it a friendly enough pub but sadly needs pulling down and rebuilding in my view, decor leaves a lot to be desired, a stale smell of beer hangs about the place. a visit only if your caught out in the rain for this one.

Pub first licensed in 1856 when the license was transfered from the Fighting Cocks which was demolished to make way for the railway station , the pub is directly opposite the station , the layout is just one room on two levels , the bar is on the upper level .
It feels a bit run down and in need of a splash of paint .
Usual keg taps plus two handpulls with Marstons Pedigree and a decent Banks Sunbeam , service was OK .
OK for a quick pint while waiting for a train
