About the Pub

Demolished 24/5/17 for other use. Closed on 19/4/11. Did sell Black Sheep Bitter and guest beers. A former Greenalls house this was owned by Punch Taverns and was run by the amiable Kev Bayles, very much a cask beer man. It was essentially one L-shaped room, traditionally decked out in dark wood and comfortable seating. Decorated in dark colours with some fine wood fittings, it had a very restrained, yet genteel style that you may liken to that of gentlemen’s’ club or private library. For a long time, this did not sell cask ale, so it was great to report the return of the cask. There was a good beer garden at the back, too. This was one of the pubs where the trade largely evaporated when term time ends so only one of the three hand pumps was in use in quieter times.
