About the Pub

Traditional late Victorian pub with the rooms knocked through into one in the 1980s. Refurbished again in 2018 but retaining some original features. The exposed brickwork includes some quirky wall pictures and bric-a-brac. An upstairs area has pool, table football and darts. A large courtyard at the back includes some water features, a partially covered smoking area and frequent passing trains beyond the wall. A single bar serves up to eight changing ales from national brewers. Regular live music on Saturday evenings is supplemented by a popular jukebox. Adjoins St Denys railway station.
