Mike Miller: (18/01/00) Greene King, so usual IPA and Abbot (no Triumph) options. Like lots of GK pubs, they do cheap spirit doubles too. If you go in the front you may not realise how big it is - the back is extensive, and also a little plusher. Outside section set off from the adjoining car park with a few nice flowers - total of 6 benches. Food served lunchtimes and weekday evenings - looks to be good value though I haven't personally tried any. A couple of fruit machines (one of which I think I've actually made a profit on, which is highly unusual!) are dotted about, there's a big-screen TV, a pool table, and a juke-box. Bar staff are reasonably friendly. Clientele at lunchtime are mostly reasonable - some APU students, some business people. Has a reputation for being little dodgy in evenings; while I haven't visited by evening yet, it had this reputation while the Bakers Arms, and while the evening clientele then were mostly young and looked a bit dodgy, they also seemed friendly and didn't feel at all threatening. So it's the sort of place I probably shouldn't like, but I rather do anyway.

Richard Kastein: (reviewed while still The Baker's Arms) Much bigger than it looks from the outside. Lots of space to sit down and I think you can drink outside in the garden at the back.
