WOW, just read both of your comments, both of which are full of inaccurate information.
Firstly, the guy in the bandana is history.
The prevalence of drug dealers and their ilk is practically non-existent.
There has always been drug misuse in the area because of the demographic profile, it is not specifically related to this pub (indeed others in the area are of more concern).
The thing that annoys me about negative reviewers is that they rant without forethought to their issues.
When you considered moving to your property, you knew there was a pub nearby and yet you still chose to do so. The Fiddle and Bone in town was closed because a new resident in the area objected to their music and let’s face it, the demise of many a pub is down to people like you.
You have undoubtedly been into the pub BUT OBVIOUSLY not recently because you would know about the change in Management which took place at least 2 MONTHS prior to your review!
I have been drinking in this pub for over 30 years and it used to be one of the focal points in the area however, with the incessant increase in properties to let, the community has and is, suffering from the influx of small minded, self-centred residents who care not for the local amenities.
As for the comment about your week old baby, congratulations on your new arrival, pop down the pub sometime and I’ll buy you a drink.
