    Not so much fail as just why? Or maybe Epsom's cabbies don't know how to get from the station to the pub? And in any case why go to Epsom which is miles away when you can walk from Stoneleigh in ten minutes or so?

    And even it was, some might argue that proximity to Croydon is not necessarily something to boast about.

    I burst out laughing when the review mentioned that the toilets had an electric dryer. What thought processes are going on there? Still, it probably makes a change from drying his hands on his shirt.

    This Anonymous User "has posted 0 recommendations about 0 pubs" - I did a double take, and clicked on the link on the user name, which took me...back to this same review. Is this a special feature, where this and other Anonymous Users exist in perpetual stasis between a black hole and an alternative dimension? I think we deserve some enlightenment:
