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.
