A generally bland 60s estate pub from the outside, with a beer patio at the rear.

The interior has two roomws. The bar is in blue and white mainly, with little in the way of pictures/photos and ephemera, with a pool table, dart board, TVs, loudish music and a mixed clientele enjoying the beer. The lounge is the total opposite, being a family orientated value food eatery, in the white and salmony colour decor, with TVs showing the cricket - one being 3D. There were some old photos of the area on the walls here. The service was fine, the clientele in the lounge were mixed, with families as well.

Beer; tap stuff, with Bombardier, Spitfire and a guest of Bateman's You've Blown it in South Africa - a topical and reasonable beer.

Whilst this place wasn't exactly my cup of tea, it does combine successfully the aspects of a gastropub eatery and a proper bar room, with real ale and pub games. A place i could pop in for one, but many will stay for longer.
