E TA left this review about Flying Saucer

The Flying Saucer is a busy John Barras-owned village pub, built in the 1960s, not the chocolate-box type but a modern, working pub. It consists of a single long bar with a mix of wooden and carpeted floors. There are gaming machines, tv screens showing regular Sky Sports events and a dartboard, and the jukebox was set at a sociable volume. The clientele represent a good cross-section of the local community, though the balance was towards the football lovers, while the staff were friendly and polite. The food is pretty dire, it must be said, and the fixtures and fittings are unremarkable. Two ales on, Bombardier and London Pride: I had the former which was in surprisingly good condition. Overall a decent enough local, OK for a pint if passing staying locally.
