Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Watering Trough

Despite the brewer's Tudor façade, now very much a music pub, although it thankfully retains a fine two-room interior with plenty of dark-wood panelling and other features of interest. The larger bar extends back some distance and features the dartboard and sports TV when no music on. The more compact and comfortable bar on the other side of the central servery was hosting a busy poker game when I stopped by. Sharp's Doom Bar and Atlantic (£3.05) plus Old Rosie cider were available from the five handpumps divided between the two counters.

A live music pub that seems to lean on the rock side. The pub is a traditional style pub that stretches back and has 3 rooms but with a lot of pictures of music bands. No Half Man Half Biscuit pictures or Sonic Youth which was disappointing. The 3 handpumps on one side of the bar and 2 on the other with Old Rosie Cider and 2 Sharps beers, Doom Bore and Atlantic.

Further to the reviews below The Watering Trough actually stocks some great real ales now, and the cellar has the Cask Marque to say it has been regularly tested (independently) for quality, temperature and consistency. Currently on draft are Iron Maiden's Trooper, Doombar and Old Rosie. There are also regular live bands (at least 2 a month), Open Mic nights (last Tuesday of each month), Karaoke (first Thursday of each month), Darts and Poolm (free on Wednesdays) and a Jukebox of legendary status (free on Thursdays). Come on down and enjoy a pint with us, you'll love it!
