29 September 2004

It was lateish on a Wednesday night on our visit and the place was empty, which meant a strange atmosphere for such a big pub. Plenty of TVs everywhere and a big screen, which was just showing normal telly stuff. I imagine it would be a good place for some serious atmosphere for an England game though. There's two pool tables on a raised area (empty - but I imagine busy at the weekends!). It was all very acceptable but nothing very exciting. G.
The pub is pretty large for a local type but it was pretty empty as well and had no atmos what so ever. Nice pool tables which we could easily get on (check out that pool action) but not a lot else to report. Oh yes, nice Juke box. S.


Adnams Bitter was off - which was a big disappointment. Nothing else to get excited about, so it was a case of falling back to the Kronie. G.
The Kronie was served in Kronie glasses though so that was a nice touch. Other than that usual fare of lagers though I can't recall whcih ones and also, yes you guessed it, Guinness. S.

"This pub is very much a family pub with a bouncy castle in the garden for the kids. The food is superb and there is a good atmosphere when you walk in. Sometimes it doesn't get busy during the week because people work all week and play at the weekend."
