About the Pub

In the past this has been an excellent, large Brains pub with many guest ales, and was a frequent entry in the Good Beer Guide. Sadly it was destined for closure in December 2012 but it still seems to be hanging on, albeit under new management. There is a redevelopment proposal currently going on which will involve converting the upper floors to flats and retaining the pub in the ground floor. Imposing, if now rather scruffy exterior but inside the lounge is some ornate woodwork, including an impressive staircase, and some fine etched glass windows.. There is also a back room with a splendid cast iron stove and a more basic bar. Quiz on Sat and poker on a Wed.
