We've been here a few times over the years and never been disappointed.
Good basic freshly cooked food at a reasonable price.
Excellent choice of ales, wines,soft drinks and hot drinks.

“Decent pub, strange food service”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

This is a nice bar with a good range of beers. The barmaid on Saturday night was fairly efficient but not pleasant (unless she knew you in which case she seemed sweetness and light). We ordered food with a starter of tomatoes, mozzarella, olives etc and 2 main courses. We waited ages for the food (at least half an hour) and nobody else seemed to be eating. We were just querying things at the bar when all the food came at once. So a 2 course meal became a 1 course. We didn't say anything as we were so hungry, we were just glad to eat! However, the food itself was very good

“Pleasantly suprised”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

Having read the mixed reviews for this pub we visited for lunch with mixed feelings, but happily were very pleasantly suprised. A traditional no frills one room pub, with no juke box or television and selling an excellent range of beers.

My partner had the scotch egg & found it excellent and the large antipasto platter was also very good. Would definately visit again but would probably reserve a table as despite arriving at 12 this place filled up very quickly with a lot of people having lunch and the atmosphere was really pleasant.

“What has happened to the Keans Head”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Not been for a while and it will be a long time before we visit again. No heating on at all. Cold. Got there at lunch time and waited 35 minutes for the food, ours being only the second order. The sausage and mash was lukewarm when it came out and could not bite through the ciabatta on the burger. Two guys after us had sausage and mash and they had eaten it all when their veg was served. The toilets have more cobwebs on the ceiling than draculas castle. Beer very good though. This is such a shame as we loved coming here. Its as though someone has stopped caring about the place.

“Tip top, smashing beer and great food”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

Looking for somewhere to eat before a show at the arena, it would be hard to improve on this place and only 5 minutes away.
Wide range of beers for the discerning drinker. Good non corporate menu, with most of the ingredients sourced locally some within 2 miles.
Staff were excellent, we will certainly be returning here.
