About the Pub

Built in 1887 in brewers tudor style, the Pelham Arms was originally opened as a hotel by the Pike Spicer Brewery. The rambling interior is these days divided into distinct areas. Mainly traditionally furnished, though with the addition of some leather upholstered settles, the pub also includes a small, pleasant family room, with adjoining doors separating it from the main bar room. There is a bookcase in the front bar area and a selection of board games is available to drinkers. At the opposite end of the pub, a pool table and a pair of dart boards can be found. BT and Sky Sports is shown on television and live music is hosted. A quiz is held at 7pm on Wednesdays and karaoke is hosted on the first Saturday of each month. The pub is available to hire for private functions. Home-cooked food is served Tuesdays to Thursdays 5pm-8pm, Friday and Saturday 12pm-7pm and Sundays from 12pm-6pm (when Sunday Roasts are served).

The Pelham also has a surprisingly large, lawned beer garden and patio area to the rear.
