"What a delight it is to see my beloved Whittle rescued from the badger-haired "blondes" who ran it for a while last year. There's excellent real ale, a clientele which provides conversation that runs the full gamut from odd to weird (but always amusing), there's football and rugby on the TV, and as if that wasn't enough, I gather Jon's in high-level negotiations with a pie supplier and Macy's had a boob job."

"As a stranger to the town, i was made most welcome and joined in the crack with all the locals for a good saturday afternoon. Excellent staff, friendly dog, and spoilt for choice on the excellent range of hand pulled beers. Will go again"

"From the outside a fine looking pub; but on the inside just average. Pool table for those who like that sort of thing. There is an upright piano in the front room (not sure if it's used though). Old Speckled Hen & Duechers on Hand Pull."

"Seemingly the stop off before the gallows in ancient times.....Having experienced the lack of atmosphere on a Saturday night I would have expected the gallows to be a relief.....a standard choice of beer, served in average condition with live(ish) music in the background meant a quick turnaround for me and Lady Lardy.

"The new people seem to be wanting to take this place downmarket: they've installed extra-bright lights, and have stopped some of the local musicians' sessions, preferring to take these "circuit" pub singers instead. Last time I was in there there were two men discussing their latest fights they'd had at the football. "
