Danny O'Revey left this review about The Old Vic

Very basic run down 1st floor club, accessed from the buildings side door. In poor nick and the large barking dog is very off putting and unwelcoming.

However the beer is surprisingly good and the landlady friendly enough.

There is a side bar with hatch if you want to avoid the dog!

Was greeted by a large noisily barking dog which happily was kept behind the bar whilst I was there. Two not very strong real ales and some decent cider. Would have given it six if the dog hadn't been there.

Formerly the Victoria Social Club, now an upstairs bar reached by a long flight of stairs from an entrance in the side street. There's pool and snooker in a room to the right at the top, with the bar to the left. There are seven hand pumps, with three ciders and just two beers available at the time of my visit. The pub is handily placed for a quick half between trains. I had Mithril Black Elf, which drank better than it reads.

Date of visit: 25th November 2015
