Just up the road from the Old Fox & Hounds and has a similar clientele, older males. They do however have 6 shots for £5 and WKD offers so I guess they must be looking to attract the younger element as well. An attractive pub with lots of wood paneling and etched glass. Large windows on two sides make it very bright and ideal for people watching. Pool table, dartboard and a digital jukebox. Adnams is the only cask beer they serve and whilst my pint was drinkable it seemed on its way out, although to be fair the barman did warn me.

With its location at the top of Croydon's main shopping street and close proximity to West Croydon bus and train stations, this place could do a good trade in an area otherwise lacking in decent boozers. However, whenever I walk past, the place seems to be empty.
I decided to pop in at lunchtime today and was surprised to see quite a few people in there. Both the ales (IPA and Adnams) were off, but there was a decent selection of lagers on offer. The place looks and feels a little drab and depressing and the loud music pumping out didn't seem to lift anyone's spirits. It's a fairly big place, with a pool table at the rear and ornate (if rather dingy) seating booths along one side.
Fairly functional and friendly, but it's not doing enough to stop punters walking an extra 200 yards to the cheaper Weatherspoons.
