See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Large suburban 1930s pub by a busy traffic island. Named after a small area of the northern approaches of the town, as a result it is probably the only pub in the country with that name (unique pub names are not as common a distinction as you might think). Bar at the front, lounge at the back with a pool area at the side. Popular with sporting types, as shown by the football, dominoes, pool & darts references throughout the pub. Live entertainment at weekends. A second hand pump was introduced in 2014, but the pub has had difficulty tempting the locals away from their favourite beers.
Formerly selling Greene King Abbot real ale was discontinued in 2019.
