I very much like the Roebuck, it tends to be peopled but not too busy most evenings. They have meantime ales on tap plus a few other interesting beers, and the wine list is ok. Food is good, but the menu doesn't seem to change as much as it used to.
I agree, it's ok but I prefer some of the others locally like:
The Hartley - for food
The Rose - great place, great dukebox, open late.
The Rake - for serious ale fans.
Teh Roxy - for something different.
