This is a well kept pub, but beer wise it's not a patch on the Hope. Also on our visit, we found the barman/manager to be grumpy and impatient, which wouldn't really entice any newcomers to the pub. The beer choice wasn't all that neither, with four pumps and only two on. These were TT Landlord and Tribute.

A very basic and characterless locals pub, rather like drinking in a club, totally featureless apart from a David Bowie fixation in the form of a few pictures on a wall. The beer choice was fittingly plain as well, Doom Bar, Landlord and Harveys Sussex Best, the last two being decent beers if thats your thing but the Sussex was of very average quality. My advice would be to walk past this pub and go straight to The Hope..

Two bar boozer that has had a mid-market face-lift (muzak, mushroom, red and magnolia shades) but retains a bit of local character. The right hand bar is the most popular and is the main entrance - yet it fails to display all the ale options, which seems daft. These are through to the more loungey area (though it lacks the intrinsic comfort of one) which yielded four pumps with a pretty bland choice of Bombardier Gold, Sharps Doom Bar, Black Sheep and Timothy Taylor Landlord, the latter of which was fair. An uptick was the presence of cheese rolls for £1.75 a pop. WiFi didn't work. Noted a new member of staff being trained well by the long-haired barman. Ultimately, with the Hope and the Sun nearby, it doesn't do enough to warrant more than a passing look.
