When Kake, Ewan, Bec, and other Tube Walkers visited on a Sunday afternoon in March 2014, there were only a few other customers in. A TV was showing sports commentary with the sound on quietly, gently competing with some equally-quiet piped music.
There are no handpumps for real ale. On our March 2014 visit, they had Guinness Extra Cold, Tetley Smoothflow, San Miguel, and Strongbow, among other keg drinks. A J2O was £1.90. They didn't appear to have a gun for soft drinks; lemonade came from a plastic bottle and Coke came from cans.
There was no sign of food on our visit.
Kake's verdict: The whole pub seemed really quite run down, with broken locks on the toilet doors and various detritus (including a hoover) stored on what looked like it might once have been a stage area. Not somewhere I'd come back to on purpose, unless I was passing and needed a sit-down.
Accessibility: Steps at both entrances. Most of the interior seating is either on a dais (up one step) or on high stools at the bar, though there is one table on the level. No further steps to toilets. Small step to beer garden.
