This pub has changed hands at least twice since my last review, so I decided to call in and see if anything had changed. The whole pub looks cleaner and the toilets which used to be a mess had been given the deep clean treatment they so desperately needed. The lounge is still a little shabby, but there's only so much you can do without a full refurb. Two handpumps on the bar with one of them serving Bateman's XB which is very unusual for round here. It was a good, well kept pint as well. The new landlord has made a decent fist of this pub and it's worth a look in again now. Good luck to them.

This is almost an estate pub but in a fairly posh area. It's one of those custom built one storey type of places with no character. There's a vestibule area as you enter with the toilets to the left, this is a shame as the whole area smells of piss and needs a good cleaning. To the left is a large lounge to lots of dining style tables and chairs along with a number of red leather look seating areas that are beginning to look a bit shabby. There's also a fake fireplace and a quiz machine and a couple of small TV screen. Last Friday there was evidence all over the lounge of an untethered brat, and look there she is, 3 years old and sat on a bar stool at the bar!! The is a tap room to the rear with a dartboard and pool table. There are two handpumps on the bar selling TT Landlord and Copper Dragon Best. I had a Copper Dragon which was OK but not as well kept as at the Wine Press just up the road. It's OK but I wouldn't want it as my local.
