We tried the Broomfield Tavern on Saturday afternoon/evening. We had booked a table in advance for 4.00 PM, and it was the last free table! They only have about eight, and all of them were either full or reserved. It was interesting to see people turn up, and be told, "Well you can have this table for half an hour until they turn up", and the punters being happy to comply. In these days of table service, when you can't look at he bar to see what is available, there were mini menus pinned to the wall by the table for the real ales and ciders, and a big blackboard with the bottled beers displayed. Not being real ale or cider drinkers, we stuck to bottles and tins. The two different barmaids who served us were friendly and efficient, and took payment in cash or cards. Prices were fine, but went up when Peroni was ordered, naturally. There was a nice chilled atmosphere, with no piped music, just conversation. The landlord lit an open fire later on, which added to the cosy feel. It is a dog friendly pub, and a large St Bernard was wandering around, which was fine by us. No sign of the alterations, but I think they will be to the back room where bands used to play We were there for a pre-curry drink, so left before eight, and it was still busy then. If we had been staying for longer I might have tried some of the more interesting ciders on offer. We had a very pleasant few hours in the Broomfield, and I'm sure we will be back.

Well my first time in the place and won't be coming back in a hurry. Shame really as I live locally and it looks a nice little pub. Walked in with my Covid mask in hand as everyone inside had no masks on... I had Chris the bartender rush up to me like the riot police and tell me if I didn't put my mask on whilst standing I'd have to leave! I apologised and explained it was my first time, that I just wanted a table for 2 as I was meeting a friend for a drink. Apparently all of the over half dozen empty tables were booked... Quite hard to belive considering it was just over an hour to the 10pm covid curfew. I found Chris' attitude confrontational and lacking any good customer service.

This is a great place to go if you are a real ale fan. Around 10 ale taps with a good range of ales and it's dog friendly too. I visited when attending a beer festival at the rugby club a few minutes walk away and was very impressed - it's like beer festival itself! I believe it also hosts live bands too. It's a wet pub (no meals) but all in all a fabulous place to visit for ale fans.

I'm glad that places like this still exist. Despite the pub trade being tough with lots of good old fashioned pubs disappearing, this is a gem of a pub that caters for those who just want decent beer in a friendly and relaxed environment. They also do a fantastic range of real ciders so it is truly a drinkers paradise.

There are a couple of other pubs in Butts End but this is easily the best. The range of beers and friendly staff make for a good night out and the only downside is the somewhat cramped room. It will be better when the presumably under development back bar is made more comfortable but it always seems difficult to get to the bar because of the narrow access when all the tables are occupied .
