Went there Sunday night for a family drink on my birthday , we had been out to dinner elsewhere and arrived about 10 pm. when we arrived we had to find someone to serve us , they were all chatting in the kitchen ! i was with my elderly parents and my sisters and there husbands , we wanted to know the strength of the beers , the 2 young ladies behind the bar had no idea. We ordered 3 pints of the HB lager it was undrinkable , should think it was either "off " or the beer lines had not been cleaned for sometime ! they did however change them without comment. We sat at the end of the bar , and when i heard the bell i assumed it was for last orders , in fact it was the time bell , i went straight to the bar , but there was no one there , eventually one of the young ladies came to the bar , Iexplained that i had not heard the first bell , would it be possible to get a drink because it was a special occassion , she asked this young chap who i assume was the manager, he came over and said no , which i thought was fair enough , it was a bit much though when he poured someone else a drink and said they were a "resident" and wished me happy birthday ! I will never go there again !
