Odd boozer tucked away off Temple Street, had to ask for directions, or else I would never have found it. Pub is homely enough, although the number of Union Jacks and England flags is a bit over the top. Service fine and the pint of Daggers was enjoyable, not great but worth a quick visit.
Visited on a Friday evening in July. Tucked away just off Victoria St the venue has a large decked outside area, loud pop hits from the 00s blaring and a turtle or two overseeing affairs. Couple of rebadged Beerd beers as house beers on plus a good range of guests. Camra discount, beer tat everywhere makes the place nice. Beer was good, decent prices, friendly staff. Worthy of a stop off
shabby back-corner local with character t it...very much like someones living room that just happens to have a lot of cask available. And lots of pumpclips.
Hot pies/ pork pies available with decent selection of chutney. Always a good cross-section of society in from students to CAMRA types to old couples. Beers generally in good condition (cask) though not always the most adventurous.

We visited here on Saturday 3rd January 2015, we being me, Loz, Isobel and Berry (Isobelís dog) it being a dog friendly pub it was a must visit. I must say that Loz and Isobel were back peddling when we got towards the pub, I think the Union Jacks and other patriot paraphernalia really put them off, even inside I think Loz was still rather unimpressed. Beer choice more limited than it suggestís with just a handful of handpumps on offer including two from XT (our most local brewery) I had a Heavy Industry Collaborator a beer that Iíve had before but there was nothing new for me here. The place is a little cluttered and a little bit tatty, a large fish tank at the rear near the toilets had a few large terrapins bobbing about, photos, and hundreds of beer pump clips festooned the

I liked the Cornubia. It was bright and cheerful and festooned with Christmas decorations and World War I ďlest we forgetĒ poppy flags over the usual decor - lots of beer mats plus military flags on the walls and ceiling. Thereís a nice big window seat with union jack cushions. It may sound a bit brash but actually itís nice - the whole place has a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. There are ten hand pumps, five of which were in use when we were there.

AVOID AVOID AVOID -Landlord thinks its ok to tell a young lady to get the f**k out of my pub and PUSH her because she walked through the gate of the beer garden with half a tiny sandwich. Any person with respect for women or anyone for that matter would have said "excuse me can you eat that before you come inside the pub ground" not man handle her. If you condone pushing women around then this is the pub for you.
Decor is sort of crazy. Union flags and English patriotic stuff everywhere. Plus a parrot and aquarium. Plus pump clips on every spare scrap of walk. Friendly enough. With a small but pleasant cask selection.
