Stumbled across the Blagrave Arms accidentally and so glad we did! Really friendly staff and the best Mac 'n' Cheese! It was superb and the loaded skins were great too. Will definitely be back!

Lovely venue. It wasn't very busy when we went but it was a Wednesday evening so we kind of made our own atmosphere. The staff were great, great selection of beers and ciders.... Would definitely recommend it.

Fabulous end to a brilliant day at the races. Staff and customers were super friendly and extremely welcoming. Karaoke brilliant. We were a bunch of ladies who were made to feel part of the establishment. Would recommend that you try it.

Nice small but stylish pub/bard near the centre of town. Good food in the daytime but that stops about 7.30pm. Good efficient friendly staff and management. In the evenings it turns into a very gay friendly bar with lively DJs and karaoke on different nights....More

Depends what you mean by mixed. Has standard pub clientele during the day for lunch etc. and early afternoon. The regular gay crowd normally starts to turn up at around 7ish and as the night goes on the gayer it gets. Big... More
