Michael Wright left this review about The Criterion

Walked in on the off chance, having noticed landlord shutting the door to prevent fag smoke blowing into the bar

A real community pub, friendly banter going on, a few with a bit too much booze inside them, but not in a nasty or threating way

I counted 6 ales & 4 ciders, all fairly local West Country origins

Lots of memorabilia on the walls, although some may be job lot "from Pubs R Us"

Furniture & surrounding are basic pub stuff, not one to go to if seeking to impress, but one to go to if you want a nice pint

Gill Smith left this review about The Criterion

Comfortable community pub with good beers and appears to be active on the pub games front with darts, bar billiards and table skittles. Hadn't a clue how to play the bar billiards which always fascinates me so had a go just trying to pot the balls without knocking the mushrooms over. Landlord came over to explain things to me. Enjoyed the Cotswold Spring Old English Rose from handpull, and Wells & Young Courage Directors from one of the 4 on stillage behind the bar.
