About the Pub

Having been closed and sold by Punch in 2013 these premises, of many other previous names, reopened in August 2017 as the Walker Briggs under the management of Antic. Legend has it that Queen Victoria once stopped here to drink a glass of water. It is a long narrow pub with the usual Antic shabby chic style with bare brick walls with eclectic displays and bare wood flooring. Large rear paved patio garden. The bar is equipped with 4 handpumps and sells a range of craft keg beers. Toilets (except the disabled one) are downstairs. Opens at 10am Saturday & Sunday for brunch with alcohol available from 11am and noon respectively. Taken over by Portobello Brewing in 2020.
