Having lived in the Anstey New Build Development (just behind the Crown) for 2 years and six months, it is crazy to think it was the arrival of our family friends from Kansas in the US for us to visit this pub (since we moved in).
We visited the pub on Saturday evening and my American friends had a brilliant evening! There was a singer delivering American Motown classics and a great Elvis track.
The barmaids were very friendly and paid great attention to our American friends. The drink was very well priced and there was a good range available.
The evening atmosphere was very good and everyone was very friendly.
We then visited the pub again on Sunday afternoon for a drink and my daughter enjoyed playing on the Bouncy Castle (with the other local children).
For a long period in 2015 this pub was closed and it is great to see it open and being very busy during both the evening as well as the day time.
I hope it continues to be busy.
