Nice looking pub on the exterior with a basic but functional interior as described by Quinno and still decked out in flags as described by Tris C. It was pleasing to see six different ales on,but on closer inspection nothing really grabbed my attention, Caledonian XPA,Youngs Gold,Brains Bitter,Wells Bombardier Glorious English,Trumans Rio Gold and a revived Watneys Pale, I went for the Trumans but found it to be an average beer.
Like Tris below,i'm not likely to return anywhen soon.

Much as described below, with a mix of locals and a few tourists. The place was decked out with flags, presumably remaindered from the Six Nations and looked a bit naff. There's a tiled bar apron, a boarded floor, conventional furniture, a TV (off thankfully) and muted music. The lavatories open directly onto the pub which isn't very attractive.

However, the pub had a varied choice of ales: Jurassic Brewhouse Citrus Maximus, Well's Bombardier Glorious English, Truman's Runner, Brain's Bitter, something from Equinox and Caledonian's Golden XPA which was decent and just £3.60 a pint which is cheap for the area.

Scores points on the ale and price front, but otherwise I can't really see myself coming back.
