Bucking Fastard left this review about The Silk Trader

Robinsons have spent a lot of money on a refurb,but may have wished they hadn't.There is a fine late Georgian exterior but internally it has the vibe of a bar,lots of exposed brick,white tiles around the servery,a pool table,high tables near the bar and flatscreen above the fireplaces.The name has changed,but at least thats a nod to the towns history as is a wall decoration of various silk threads.
The bar has 4 handpumps but I and others were informed that both the Unicorn and Dizzy Blonde were off,but the clips were not reversed,very bad form.That just left hobsons choice of Trooper,a malt dominated brew not to my taste at £3.25.Even the St Miguel lager was off !
An all day drinker was making an arse of himself,the local lads were quaffing the lager that was on,and I couldn't wait to move on.
Nothing to see here.

Alan Winfield left this review about The Boar Hound

This pub used to be called the Commercial Hotel.
The Boarhound is a back street pub that is fairly close to the train station but away from the town centre.
This is a Robinsons tied house that had been done up inside in the corporate Robinsons manner,this was quite smart and comfortable and there were two Robinsons beers on the bar i had a drink of Robinsons bitter and this was very nice the other beer was Robinsons mild.
