I have been going for over 20 years and have never seen the lager louts/ASBO types/a fight etc etc that have been mentioned here. The staff are great and you get all sorts of customers from kids to grannies. Yes, the toilets are a disgrace, though, and have been the same since I first went. They don't put me of... More

If you like lager louts and screaming girls who are sick on the streets after the inevitable fight between the ASBO customers then this is the place for you. Rough isnt the word for this establishment.It is depressing and shows British behaviour at its worst . Like the previous post stated AVOID

Visited this pub in August 2008 following "rave" reviews on Tripadvisor. The staff are really nice and pleasant but if this is meant to reflect what a British Pub is like, no wonder its quiet! We stayed for two drinks whilst watching the football and everyone else in the pub left after one drink - no wonder! The toilets are... More
