Malden man left this review about Volunteer Hotel

This large grade II listed Victorian pub has at some time past been opened out into one main area but with a feel of a degree of separation. Likely to have been a five or more roomer at one time, now we find the bar on the back wall opposite the entrance, to the right is a games area with a pair of dartboards and a pool table while to the left a slightly raised area looks to be the preferred dining zone. Some leaded stained glass remains. Darts must feature highly here, there are several trophies of significant size on shelves. Carpeted main area, lino and boarded to the right, mid afternoon found a half dozen or so blokes chatting around the bar and watching the horse racing while a few others ate the unbelievably priced food, ham, egg and chips was £2.50, baked potatoes started from £1 and increased dizzily to all of £1.50. Beers are from Holts, like a return to my formative drinking days with just mild and bitter, bitter was £2.56.
As a historical side note this remains as far as I can recall the only pub I have ever been barred from, back in around 1981, for having the temerity to return a bad pint. It was a Whitbread pub back then. Thankfully attitudes seem to have changed for the better since.

A very ornate looking pub. A Holts pub which is open plan inside with various areas to sit. A raised area is to the left with a pool table to the right. A clean comfortable place it is a pleasant pub to pass some time in. 4 handpumps on the bar but only Holts Bitter and Mild on them.
