About the Pub

Circular pub refurbished in 2013 with meals much more prevalent than previously. A central bar runs around the pub covering the bar and lounge. Seating around the perimeter with high tables near the bar/entrance and lower dining tables further back. Large car park at the rear and garden sytle seating at the front and side of the pub.

Historic Interest

The Magpie was opened 19 April 1956, a conversion and extension of an earlier house; ‘Glenlyn’ is shown on the 1938 OS map, from which the associated coach house survives. The pub has a separate skittle alley – the long, narrow building to the south side of the pub, now closed and used as a store, but the alley can be seen through the window. Conversion of Glenlyn by Cecil Howitt and Partners with extensions either side, shown in plans dated 4 February 1953 for the Home Brewery. The name of the premises was changed to the Magpie by letter of 20 April 1955. The original near-square house became the smoke room and half of the lounge set either side of the entrance hall, with toilets at the rear. The lounge has only a small service area, separated by this through hall from the ‘L’-shaped service area for the smoke room and the large public bar added to the right, with lavatories at the rear. A small extension to the lounge was added to the right. There is no sign of the skittle alley on these plans (Elain Harwood / Historic England). As at November 2017, the freehold for the Magpie (NT226712) was held by the Spirit Pub Company (Leasing) Limited (Reg. No.5699544), a Greene King subsidiary.
