About the Pub

Since being restyled as the Ashelea it has settled down in to a comfortable pub that does food welcoming the type of people who enjoy that relaxed atmosphere. Its location undoubtedly helps it avoid the bustle and noise of some of its High Street neighbours. It is deceptive in appearance because it is on two levels inside - the low-level to the right is where drinkers generally mingle, whilst the upper-level hosts the main bar, various nooks, niches and dining areas arranged off that. All of this is done in that slightly over-the-top rustic design, but it is believable. Four small rivulets meet under the cellar which aids cellar cooling. A quiz night is held Thursdays, whilst game features on the occasional themed-food night (ask for details). Handy for a walk in nearby Abney Park. Cask ale club loyalty card - buy seven pints get the eighth pint free.

Historic Interest

The Ashlea can trace its roots back to 1871 when it began life as the Railway (the former Goods Yard can be seen opposite). Then, and up until the mid-1990s it was a fairly modest boozer. Then it got the dining treatment to emerge much as you see it now. In 1970 acquired with Swales Brewery, it became a Boddingtons Brewery house.
