A good traditional pub, that is well supported by the locals. There was good atmosphere and banter from the locals on my Saturday afternoon visit. Five handpumps with four taken up for Bass and a Marston's EPA. l went for the EPA, as I find the Bass quite tasteless. This pub consisted of a front lounge with the main bar area over on the left hand side and was finished in light oak. This front room also had a beer bottle collection, perched on a single shelf, that ran around the perimeter of the room. There was also a back room, with a short continuation of the bar and as Will mentions, a skittles table. Definitely worth a visit, just to experience the local camaraderie.

Five handpumps on the bar with Bass on four and the sole interloper, ex-Thwaites Lancaster Bomber, breaking ranks in the middle. The pub was busy when I arrived in early afternoon on a weekday, and all but one were drinking Bass. The pub front, that extends onto the market place, is a step below the bar area, and there's a further room behind, which has a table skittles game. I observed, from my seat in the front room, a skilful game beween three or four expert locals. When I had to step outside to take a phone call I found myself in an alley that leads to the gents toilets. There's also a further room to the rear, accessed through a door past the skittles table, and the women's toilets can also be found this way. So the pub is a lot deeper than it is wide.

This is my kind of pub - a locals pub with good beer, a friendly atmosphere and a bit of character. Of course, if you don't like Bass, better steer clear...

What is it with Uttoxeter and Bass Bitter? FIVE handpumps dispensing the stuff! Come on, use your imagination for Christ's sake. That said its a nice pub that has a table skittles game in the back room. The gents is an outhouse which could be a chore in winter. Strange.
