|Visited for a few hours on Friday night for the first time in several years. Pretty busy place - shame that crowds insist on hanging around the bar making if very difficult to get served! Apart from that, the experience was fine. Good selection of beers (8 or 9, didn't count), prices reasonable and quality v good. |

|I can understand some of the previous comments, and the landlord needs to take stock of himself for the sake of his visitors, he had a very unpleasant experience from a visitor once and he is very weary of them, and as regulars we know of the 'old git' that was mentioned in one review...he really is obnoxious old git! Once in the pub and sat down it IS a friendly pub, regulars and visitors all chat to each other, two big TV's in the main real ale bar where there are NINE cask ales on, the other part of the bar is all Belgium/continental beers and hundreds of bottled beers. There is also a large room downstairs where you will find an in-pub Brewery! large well kept garden out the back of the pub. Oppsite the kings Arms pub.|

|As all previous posters have stated .The Staff and Landlord are unfriendly to the point of being rude .|
I never thought i would be compelled to write a negative review .
On the occasions i have visited the TBA in the last few months ,the landlord is hardly ever available . Some weeks ago i entered the bar to be confronted with a scene from what i can only describe as a kindergarten.
The last occasion and most definitely my last visit, the barmaid
condescended to tell me he was at home .
I was a lover of this particular once great pub as a lot of my family and friends have used it for some time , but i am loathed parting with money for beer that was quite frankly awful .
In truth the barmaid did her best but to look after me. but a cellar takes skill and experience to keep shipshape.
So to conclude we will take our trade elsewhere.
With surroundings that could benefit from good spring clean.
This once great pub is now zero . :( :( A crying shame .

|I notced the locals have rallied round and pushed this miserable hole in to the top ten. Just goes to show how easily the figures are manipulated. This is now most definitely a zero pub. Leave it to the brusque and obnoxious locals. This site is primarily an information point for visitors and this pub is unfriendly towards outsiders.|

|Ale was good and a good range as well - ambiance not all that - big TV with F1 qualifying on and there was some scrot of an old man trying to palm off a battered 50p for the beer the landlord was serving him - the landlord gave him the beer free in the end and refused to accept the 50p. The old git was rude and gestured at the landlord to give him the beer...I'd have turfed the git out.|
Crewe looks a very downtrodden place.
