You may know this pub by one of its myriad of previous names - The Study and the Hobgoblin being the two most recent. Its latest incarnation is, one assumes, a homage to the nearby stadium and this pub is, unsurprisingly, often full of football fans and sport-lovers watching the big-screen TVs. The inside is comfy enough, with big windows open in summer and some nice comfy sofas, and the pizza-heavy menu would have looked rather appetising, were it not for the all-pervasive smell of floor cleaner. So far, so bog standard, you might think. Well, not quite - there were two things which pushed this pub above the ordinary for us. Firstly, the nude gold statue by the door (don't ask, I have no idea); and secondly, the extraordinarily friendly locals. We visited on a weeknight when the place was empty apart from us, them and a large dog (slightly in fear of our lives, it has to be said) and left dazedly murmuring, "Gosh, they were friendly".

This place is now closed, and in the months prior to its closing, I cannot conceive how it could have been a three-pinter, as they no longer served real ales when I went in January 2010.
