About the Pub

Large pub formed out of former business premises. The interior is essentially open plan but is skilfully divided up into a number of areas and levels creating a rambling feel, all enhanced by much use of wooden decor and columns near the ornate bar counter. Live music features and there is a large function room, sometimes referred to as the club, upstairs which is available for hire. The pub attracts a good cross section of customers and has built up a loyal clientele since it first emerged on the scene. It sells prodigious amounts of Draught Bass, it being the last local bastion of this famous Burton Upon Trent ale which was once commonly available in the city centre. The pub is a strong supporter of Welsh breweries while occasionally it sells ales from further afield. Look around to see the impressive number of pumpclip stickers arrayed around the upper level of the walls. A choice of cider is also available. At the rear of the premises is a large decked area with a TV which is very popular in fine weather. The kitchen/grill specialises in steaks but also offers a good range of food catering mainly for carnivores but with some and vegetarian options. One section is laid up for dining but you can more or less eat anywhere. Sunday evening has seen the return of live jazz while open mic night on Thursday is popular. There is a bus stop at the rear for some westbound services.
