Probably takes it's name from the busy traffic junction outside,there is little of interest inside after a brutal refurb.It's totally corporate with an L shaped bar , standard chairs and tables everywhere and a dark carpet to further suck out any atmosphere.The pub wasnt busy and the array of lager fonts were being used the most.Just two real ales Ringwoods Razor Back and Boon Doggle (dull but drinkable).A corporate menu offering food service fodder didnt inspire either,I can see no reason for a revisit.

A county town hotel, once an Eldridge Pope house, currently owned by Marstons. The ground floor of this once pleasant Georgian building has been gutted and turned into a soulless single bar aimed mainly at those who enjoy dull, unimaginative slop. A half-hearted attempt is made to make things interesting by having bargain curry nights. The only ale on was Ringwood Best, served in an amateur fashion by resentful young staff, presumably failures from some sort of yoof opportunity scheme. The beer was bland, not properly kept and a bit of a chore to finish. The muzak was irritating, but at least the WiFi worked. A good place to shelter from the rain while deciding where to go for a drink.

Called in for a pint as I was passing by chance. I wish I'd carried straight on - service was cavalier to say the least, beer was dreadful and left unfinished. Well below average.
