The Idle Hour, is a welcome replacement for the rather grubby and insalubrious-looking Queens Arms, that was this pub's previous incarnation. With the name change comes a spare, modern look, a gastro menu and dozens of clocks. We must admit, it was pretty quiet during the afternoon of our visit, so what we do say is based on rather subdued circumstances, but we it's also true to say we didn't really warm to the place. The beer was OK, but the interior is not designed for a relaxing afternoon pint - it's a gastropub first and foremost, with a bar area for your pre- and post-prandial drinks. We feel the urban-bar look sits rather incongruously in the Victorian building that this pub is, much as we sat rather uncomfortably within it. The Idle Hour may be just the thing for the hungry around here, but, ironically, if you're looking to spend a relaxing hour or two's conversation over a pint, with a bunch of friends, there are more suitable alternatives.
