A typical Hogshead with all that entails - good beer, good food, reasonable atmosphere - but these pubs are so formulaic it's hard to feel any real enthusiasm for them. The "historic" (early 20th century) appearance that the street facade presents is misleading too - most of the pub is in the glass-fronted and wholly characterless and generic post-Thatcher shopping centre.
