Great pub but for the love of God please clean the toilets. The place is really starting to smell quite gross.


Nothing wrong with the pub per se, but I haven't a good word to say about the management. A friend I was with on a weeknight out was refused service 'for being patronising' to the landlord, though he claimed he'd literally asked for the round of drinks, having to repeat what he said because the landlord didn't initially understand his accent. This was 2 drinks into the evening (circa 8pm), nobody was drunk or badly behaved. The landlord would not explain what it was that had offended him; he said he didn't have to and he refused to serve anyone in our group (of 4). I wouldn't set foot in this pub again if it was the last hostelry on earth. This landlord is abusing his power. I have no idea why he wouldn't serve my friend, he simply wouldn't justify his decision.


King Charles the 1st is one surprising Pub! With a good selection of Ale, that they change all the time for the happinness of the customers of trying new Ales. Nice and cosy, tucked away in a little road, not far from the station (5 minutes walk), the decoration is very ethlectic and surprising, the bar staff warm and friendly, and the people in there are very electric and always up for a good laugh ... made a few friends myself! Highly recommended for anyone thats looking for a nice time without any troubles!!
