Alan Winfield left this review about Bishops

Bishops is a large pub that has a long frontage.
Once inside there is a large squarish shaped room with the bar on the right side,the room is bare boarded and has lots of different areas,there is a mix of bench seating and tall tables and chairs,there is a raised area to the rear which has a pool table,there were lots of TVs showing the Australia v England rugby game.
There were four real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Butcombe Bitter which was a decent drink,the other beers were St Austell Tribute,GK IPA and GK Abbot.
The pub was packed on my Saturday dinner visit with most people watching the Rugby.
I was happy enough having a drink here,but would have prefered to visit at a quieter time.

A large and spacious pub near the arches, this was a Hogshead in a former life and bizarrely there is still a blackboard sat up on a shelf that says “Welcome to the Hogshead”. It’s got quite a contemporary feel to it with it’s chocolate brown and cream paintwork and has the appearance of being part of a big chain, presumably Greene King going on the beer selection.

The central area has wood flooring, and there is a smaller carpeted area up a couple of steps to the left and this has some cream wood panelling on the walls. Elsewhere is some exposed brick work and there is a pool table at the rear. Various plasma screens are dotted around.

Food menu looked to be extensive, and appears to be your typical mass produced pub grub. A curry smell permutated the pub on a recent Thursday evening visit, no doubt due to their Curry and a pint deal for £4.99. Most of the mains were around the £6 mark, and a blackboard listed various “Pub classics” such as Chicken Tikka Masala, Gammon & Egg, Fish & Chips, Roast Beef, lasagne, etc.

Beers on tap were Abbott Ale, Ruddles County, Bath’s Barnsey, GK IPA and GK Libertine. Ciders were Thatcher’s Gold, Stowford Press and Lilley’s Apple & Pear.
