    I doubt the supplier will care if they did, new people means new start. The food is more than just ingredients though, I miss the chilli cheese fries of old :(

    Is it still trading under this name?

    Maybe we should have a new thread when a definite way forward becomes established.

    No - I don't believe it is - I was too busy eating delicious burgers to make a new thread one for the lovely @Admin to sort I guess -although it is the same chef...

    So how does it compare with the sadly departed successful incarnation. The one before the numpties took over?

    It's been a while since I had a burger there, but these lived up to my expectations and i'd be more then happy to eat many more of them.

    Was in there yesturday too @Wormella , food was great and the generou portions back on form too. New staff learning the ropes which was great to see. though I think the prices have been put up for drinks though? £2.45 for a soft drink..

    Went back in again last night, and the atmosphere was back on form, great band playing, lots of people again....felt almost like the vaults of old.

    Just the god aweful spray paint job on the back wall sorting out now.

    I’m told that the seemingly favourable ‘new’ landlord that followed ‘JD’ has now been replaced themselves!

    Can someone give me an update, it’s rather difficult to keep up to pace from Cornwall.

    Also, @Admin do we think it’s fair to re re name this thread now JD left with all the money in the middle of the night?

    Don't seem to be any current functioning websites or facebook pages for the pub. It is no longer on Marston's list of available pubs.

    I went in on Saturday. The food being served looked decent but not as nice as the previous awesome burgers. Service at the bar was slow but decent beer.
