Grapes, Watercress Harrys & Saracens Head reassessed
Last week we re-evaluated 3 town pubs, to read the full reviews just click on the pub names below:
- The Grapes (pictured below):
The Grapes has recently been refurbed and it looks all the better for it, the interior is a lot lighter, cleaner, fresher and airier. There was a friendly welcome and lots of comfy seats to choose from; however, the pool table has vanished and there seems to have been a move away from a drinking pub and towards a more meal orientated establishment, and therefore has lost a few marks on it's old score.
- The Saracens Head (pictured below left): aka the pub that time forgot, this is exactly the same as it's always been. However it must be said that there was a friendly welcome and the pool area and bar is ok although a bit run down- but it new mark lifts it off the foot of our ranking table.
- Watercress Harrys (pictured below right): this is a nice open bar with plenty of tv's and would be good for watching sporting events. But on this visit the barmaid wasn't very nice and the seating isn't very comfy- to be honest I wont be rushing back.
