Soup Dragon left this review about Gough Arms

The Gough Arms is a detached Marston's pub and eatery. It replaced an earlier pub on the site, of the same name, when a new estate was laid out in the 1930's. Symmetrical, slightly art deco, it is in cream render with a coffee central entrance - the outstanding feature being the rounded towers. The interior (of what i saw) is simply one large room that curves U-shaped around the bar. It is all foody. It is in green, cream, patterned wallpaper and wood panelling - so the usual set-up for this kind of place - only it has a moulded cornice and the lights are tasteful. There are a couple of brick and tile fireplaces and some prints on the walls. The TV wasn't on and the music general and at a soft level. The service was friendly and a mixed clientele were in, all dining. I ddn't eat so can't comment on that. Beer; usual tap stuff with Banks's Bitter, MILD (decent) and Hobgoblin on handpull. I found this place tidy and decent for a foody one - happy enough to pop back.
