Aqualung . left this review about The Crockerton (Lloyds No1)

The Crockerton is an unashamed Lloyds No 1 (it even says so on the outside). As such it has Sky Sports and had music playing on my Wednesday evening visit. It's a low ceilinged square room with a pointless lighting circle in the middle of the ceiling. The bar is at the back of the room but on the right up a couple of steps is the Lloyds disaster area with lights, speakers and idiot booth.
The bar has a set of four and a set of three hand pumps where the beer choice was absolute rubbish consisting of the JDW Trio Of Doom with Doom Bore doubled, one unused, Brain's SA and Oakham JHB. I went for a "craft" option, Brain's Barry Island IPA for which I was charged just £2.25. If this is Brain's contribution to "craft" then they should stick to what they know, producing boring mediocre cask ales. It was hopeless, like drinking a pint of iced water.
The whole thing was a complete waste of time.
