Firstly, I see this review is six years old.. surely there ought to be an expiry date on this site.. the pub is now (may 2011), being run by a brilliant and very experienced owner and has a very forward thinking and friendly new manager.
The atmosphere is good, the place clean, tidy and well presented. I was a cellar-man myself in a very busy south london pub where I kept Young's bitter and the every pint i have had here has been perfect. The bar staff are well trained, by Young's Brewery themselves and are very knowledgeable, polite and sociable.
They are currently re-fitting the kitchen and about to launch a new menu, which I have been lucky enough to see. Tasty treats !
I thoroughly recommend visiting this pub. It is a hidden treasure and will soon have lots of exciting entertainment as well as all the good stuff I have already mentioned
