Called in for a quick late drink in the sunny back yard. Usual group of youths spoiling the evening because they can't mind their matters. Can't really reflect on the pub but that's the crowd it attracts. 1st and last time in plenty more to...More

Came here on the recommendation of a friend to watch the football. It was a friendly so the pub wasn't overly busy, but I don't think that would have mattered as there seems to be TVs everywhere. Had a good spot to chat to a...More

Staff were a bit offish. The pub is a good size and has plenty of drinks available. The beer garden is nice and well used.

No kids! Perfect for watching a game without kids running everywhere. Ale is well priced, plenty of tv's and did I mention kids not allowed...perfect.

Nice place to visit now, long overdue refit. As already mentioned here, seems the manager has missed the point of a sports pub, as the noise disturbs him up stairs. Which is where he mainly works it seems. When you do see him, he clearly...More
