Not massively changed: still great beer, still rammed full on a Saturday. A great pub, with my only criticism being the snacks: four quid for a pork pie, and the misrepresentation of olives as a pub snack. Surprisingly, our party, ranging from early 20s to mid-fifties, pushed down the average age a bit…
We visited twice in the same evening- early on and later, and both times this was pleasant. Good staff, great beer, pleasant atmosphere, and right in the town. Music was either absent or quiet enough to talk over, but conversation kept the place lively without being grim.
Considerably less grim than my last visit, and drinkable Pedigree, and apparently doing the Gin thing quite well, according to one of our party. It’s still a typical town-centre pub, but it looks a bit smarter and the music didn’t eliminate all conversation.
Lovely micropub right in the middle of town. We got in on our second attempt; like most micropubs the popularity exceeds the capacity. Great beer, very riendly staff and no music or machines to drown out conversation. About the only problem was having to stand at the bar.
Not significantly chnaged since last time, but as the last visit was a long time ago and I don’t come here often, I’ll update: Boondoggle and Pedigree on draught, both very good. Thankfully Micky fabricant wasn’t here this time either.
What a lovely pub. Traditional, great beer choice, great staff, great outside space, and a friendly pubcat.

Part of our Taphouse Tour, and a very fine pub indeed. A great building, great beer, great staff, and great food.
