This one's been recently done up and the flock wallpaper is a nice touch - we could still smell the new paint smells when we walked in, well, new paint mixed with the smell of curry (made us feel slightly nauseous, to be honest). But other than the facelift, it hasn't really changed much. The local workers were still much in evidence and that's not really a surprise. It does a lot right, with four ales on the pumps, cheap and cheerful pub grub, plenty of place to sit, including a large garden and front terrace, and cheerful staff that don't seem phased by the crowds that pour into the place. Even with all the people, it was pleasant enough, although the smell of the Chicken Tikka Masala (and chips) did put us off a bit. Smells aside, you should be able to get a decent drink here, it just might be a bit of an achievement to actually find somewhere to drink it when it's busy.
