|NASTY. We were warned about this one by another pub, apparently there have been stabbings, underage boxing & regular strippers. It certainly lived up to its reputation. If you are planning a crawl miss this one out.|

|On a Saturday pub crawl this is not the place to be at lunchtime. Too many people with kids. We were hoping for lunch but the service for a drink was so slow we didnt fancy our chances. the best choice of drinks anywhere in Newmarket but £4.00 for a pint of Peroni is a bit steep. Reckon if we had finished in this pub it would have been full of clubbers. A respectable 7.|

|We tried this pub last Friday afternoon on a pub crawl. From the outside we thought that it would be highly unlikely to have hand pumped ales. We tried anyway as part of our attempt to drink in every place that serves real ale in N/M. Very surprised to see two hand pumped ales; Marstonís Pedigree and Best. A reasonable £2.20 a pint and not bad. The barman was friendly and stated that he was employed by Marstonís. It sounded like he was on some management programme for them and had been posted to many of their places around the country. Not our sort of pub normally and I guess this is the sort of place that is heaving on a Friday or Saturday Evening. Judging by how many bottles of spirits there were behind the bar I guess shorts and cocktails are popular in the evenings. The popular spirits must have had at least 10 bottles of each ready with pourers.|

|Have to agree with J123 on this one, although I've never stayed there. Places like this are fine 80% of the time (if a little predictable) but every weekend they fill up with the kind of dregs that tarnish living in Newmarket for us normal human beings. I like to drink and enjoy myself, but I don't like squeezing into a packed bar full of chicken pluckers and Homebase staff whilst they get so drunk their only recourse is to stagger into the street, empty their stomachs and challenge a policeman to a fight. You only need to see the generous smattering of 'Booze Britain' programmes on the box to realise what a desperate state most of our people under (and many over) 30 are in, and I don't mind saying I find it a little depressing. Every weekend I expect my car to get messed around with and some lunatic to wake me up with blood curdling screams at 4am.|
As I said - the pub is OK and the staff pretty helpful. Beer is fine, but variety not up to much. Decor feels its age - nothing remarkable about this place. A meat market for people who find the atmosphere in Cambridge too rarefied.
