Located on a busy crossroads this pub is currently thriving. Presumably a former Bass charge if a couple of large mirrors and an etched slate sign with the ubiquitous red triangle are anything to go by, this pub offers a decent ale range and was busy on the food front on a Sunday lunchtime. Inside, a snorkel-shaped bar dominates the centre of the pub with a curved staircase in the corner leading to an upstairs, unexplored, room. The floor is black and polished and a grey and teak scheme predominates. Pump-wise, Harvey's Sussex Best, Sambrooks Wandle, Theakstons Old Peculiar, St Austell Tribute and Timothy Taylor Landlord were the cask line-up with Old Rosie and Thatcher's Heritage as cider options: Camden Hells Lager and Pale Ale, and Meantime London Pale Ale and Yakima Red were available on keg. A couple of real ciders were available from wooden faux-barrels behind the bar - Sanford Fanny's Bramble and Devon Cider - for the appleheads. A half of the Theakstons was £2.25, and although looking rather watery, was in decent shape. A half of the Yakima was £2.40. The only bugbear on this visit was the noise from a loud extraction fan from a servery beyond the bar which knocked some of the ambience.

The pub was closed with the windows "whited out" when I walked by yesterday, however a sign in the window informs that it is being refurbished and will open soon with "a fine array of real ales and farmyard ciders along with hearty food".
