The pub has closed down and become a Bulgarian restuarant called "The Black Sea" restaurant. It does not yet appear to be open for busness so I have no idea what it is like. The rooms upstairs do not appear to have been refurbished (it has all happened vey quickly and I do not think there has been enough time for the rooms to have been upgraded) but I do not know this for sure. Although the pub has been refurbished into a restuarant, it does not look very welcoming or atmospheric to me: but that is not based on any direct experience of eating there. I assume the place has changed hands so I would advise anyone to be cautious until some up to date reviews are posted. I live locally, hence this review.
