“Pub Fun for Sports Enthusiasts”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Hit the Pub during World Cup match, thus crowded, but with patience found a table and received friendly service, great beer options, and good old pub food.

“No food”
Reviewed 2 July 2014 via mobile

Took ages to get served for a drink, then when looked at menu had it snatched out of our hands and told the kitchen closed at 8pm - pathetic for a pub in the centre of a busy town

“Great pub!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Have a very soft spot for The Central - when I came up with our son for his Uni interview in the depths of winter some years ago, we had superb food and great beer in very cosy and friendly surroundings and have always found a reason to drop in on every visit since. Delighted to find that it was still just as good on our most recent trip - the steaks and steak baguettes were delicious and the Old Peculier fantastic. There are TV screens but these never seem to be intrusive. It can get very busy indeed, so if you get a seat, settle in for some fine food and beer!

“Proper pub”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

What's not to like, it has a good frienly atmosphere and a tremendous selection of beer, throw in some sport on the tv and it's hard to fault.
