I've only been here for drinks, so I can't comment on the food, but I'm not a big fan of the maypole. Yes, they have a nice selection of English beers, there's no doubt about that, and as a girl who favours darker beers it's...More

From what I can tell, the MAypole is predominantly a student pub that's normally very busy in the evening. Most of the times I've been there have been after spending most of the evening in another pub with workmates before wandering our way over to...More

We used to do our courting here and returned with trepidation - things are never as good as in the past, are they? Except this was better!
