“Run down!”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

A shabby little pub which is ok for a quick pint if you want one when you get off the train but not somewhere you'd visit otherwise!

“Good Standard Sunday Roast Lunch”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

This is my first choice for a traditional Sunday lunch in Basingstoke. The atmosphere is pleasant and the bar staff are usually welcoming. There is a good mixture of regulars with passing visitors from the nearby station also popping in.

The main e.g. roast meals are always properly presented with good portions of meat with a separate portion of well cooked piping hot vegetables, all efficiently delivered. The standard menu has vegetarian choices too.

However, as it’s popular at peak times, you may have to wait a little while to order, particularly since the latest landlord has reduced the number of bar staff on duty to cover such times.

But while you’re waiting, you still have an excellent choice of ever changing, interesting and well kept guest real ales to sample….

“Good beer, food reasonable”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

I have liked this pub during occasional visits usually after train journeys
Met a friend here for lunch time drink after Christmas. The menu looks good and compared to other places was okay value wise and tasty enough.
Not going to rush back for food

“Sadly since the young couple left two years ago, this pub has gone into reverse and an idiot has taken over.”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

My husband was given a very hard time for wearing a coat with a football logo on it, the landlord was so nasty. The menu is similar to the previous landlord but the ingrediants are sub standard.
