Fizzy corporate beers, sanitised refit, big tellies, nobody in it. It's very difficult getting to 100 characters on pubs this dull.

We went in the afternoon on a Saturday. Nice little back street pub and a throwback to how it used to be. There appeared to have a good set of regulars and the prices were keen. Quite small but a chilled atmosphere just a couple...More
