“Vile atmosphere, terrible management”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

I am utterly disgusted by the attitude of Charlie who claims to be in charge, although I believe she is only the land lady's daughter, she has completely ignored numerous customers requests to watch the World Cup football and instead switched the TV to Aljazeera! Make no wonder the pub is empty on a Saturday night....

I'm terribly sorry you feel this way, and CHARLEY is a duty manager, following clear instruction. We have 3 other TVs in a separate bar area. All feed back is taken on board, but if you are unhappy I can do nothing but apologise, but my staff and team are only acting upon Instruction.

“Don't judge by the cover!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

It would be easy to be put off by the utilitarian 1970s structure and the need to pay in the car park. But an oasis can be found within and the parking is refunded (situated next to rlwy stn and had problems with commuters filling car park)

“Average at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

Food and service were ok. Nothing was great, nothing was awful and the prices were reasonable. A little more effort at being welcoming from the staff would raise the mood a bit.

Look around, there is better in the area.

“Scruffy staff, trampy locals”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014 via mobile

Very poor food, pub full of immature little scallies in dirty tracksuits. Not good at all. The food tastes like it's been microwaved and the bug barmaids attitude stinks, almost as bad as her armpits
