Loud, stripped pine sort of a place. Rather like what you would expect a
college bar to be like if you'd never been in a real one. Big pool table.
Despite the video games lining one of the walls, it's probably one of the
better pubs round here. Not as good as The Temple, mind. (16.x.1999)
Mark Dickerson, on being asked about the new management that came in on
the 29th of April:
Um, well, it doesn't seem to have changed from memory. Yes, still a lot
like a college bar pretending to be a tacky Mexican restaurant. I think
they had Abbot on as well.
I sat in the garden and felt old, though there appeared to be a couple of
more mature visitors on the pull. (18.v.2000)
