And that's it's only redeeming feature really. It used to be a mainstay of the Retford nightlife but the town's changed, except the Vine. Consistency can commendable but not in this case. Feels like a cross between a youth club and an AA meeting. Cheap...More

Went out with friends on a Friday night and was pleasantly surprised! Great atmosphere and drinks were very cheap. However the toilets do need attending to regularly as there wasn't any loo roll and the floor was extremely wet and dangerous.

What has happened to Friday nights in Retford? This pub used to be heaving but was virtually empty when we came in on a Friday night. Shame! Lager is fine & still a great location but disappointed that it was empty on a Friday night.

Nice looking pub until you step inside! Needs a lot of work to bring it up to date! Bad service! Poor mangerment! If your looking for a friendly, comfy place to have a drink it ain't here!! Spend your money elsewhere!
