About the Pub

The low-ceilinged interior has remnants of former walls and some columns but is basically open-plan with bare boards and carpeted floors and wood-panelled wainscotting below cream walls. Sport is important here, especially rugby, and major events are shown on the three big screens. Benches out front and a tiny rear patio. Excellent, home cooked pub grub with the pies being a particular attraction. Ruby Tuesday offers a choice of six curries for £5 when bought with a drink. Quiz on Thursday. Open-mic "Songsmith Sessions" on Sunday evenings. Full advantage is taken of Greene King's guest beer scheme both for regular and changing real ales. Weston's Old Rosie cider is also available.

Historic Interest

Formerly the tap for the Alma Brewery which closed in 1909. The brewery site has since been redeveloped for residential use. For a few years from 1982 the pub was run by CAMRA Investments.
