I would say this is more of a food pub than a beer pub and we had great meals in the 2 for £7 range. The beer was Molson Coors Sharps Doom Bar and Fullers London Pride. Not bad but not exceptional. The other available was Greene King Abbot, so they go for the bigger national brands. Vast internally and a large car park with some outside seating.

This pub has probably had a refurb since the last review. No sign of sticky tables!

Externally, it is a white building, much extended, with a Victorian/Georgian building at its core. Bizarrely, it does not have a nameplate or pub sign. Instead, it has an old beehive, painted white, at the top of a white pole.

I think it has a garden to the rear, but I did not investigate.

Internally, the pub has been utterly modernised and has no sign of any period character or features. It is painted in white with brown and cream leather seats and sofas in the large bar area. It also has an, uninvestigated, restaurant area.

It has the usual stuff with two real ales, Greene King IPA and Abbot Ale. I had a pint of Abbot which was quaffable, but I've had better recently.

I have no problem with modern interiors, but even I found this bland and uninspiring - but that is my personal taste. I would come here to eat, but not sit and have a pint!
