This is a wonderful neighborhood pub.
Good selection of craft and local beers and ciders, the mark of a credible establishment.
Funky old tables, chairs and the like.
We shared a table with about ten chemistry students and bad a blast.
Good pub snacks, but would be nice to offer something with a veggie theme in these days of global warming when we need to cut back on meat a bit.

Returned for 30 year uni reunion. Pub had not changed at all. Great beer selection and an excellent little beer garden at the back.

A long established and traditional pub in the heart of Kingsdown, it’s very pleasant internally with a proper pub feel to it and a good choice of beers on tap. There is also a decent sized garden at the rear. There always used to be a model train running on a track around the pub, but unfortunately on my last couple of visits this has not been working, despite the track still being there. It’s a shame they don’t get this fixed, it was a nice feature and surely wouldn’t be too much work to get it going again.

The menu offered a decent enough selection of pub staples such as lasagne, burger and so on. It was disappointing that the beef and ale pie had run out, especially since they only started serving food at 5:30 and we were then soon after 6:00. Instead I opted for the fish pie, only to be told five minutes later that this too had run out! The barman said something about head office only allocating them a certain number...? Whatever the reason, it seems to smack of poor management somewhere along the line. Consequently we took our business elsewhere.

It’s a shame as this is a really nice pub and I’d happily stop in again for a drink, but I won’t be rushing back for the food until they get their stock control sorted out.
