About the Pub

Formerly part of Mitchells and Butlers O'Neill's chain of theme pubs, before that the Sugar Loaf (a Bass Charrington house in the 1970s, and apparently it featured in an episode of Minder - let us know if you spot it!) and a pub dating back to at least the 1770s when it was a meeting place for the Jerusalem lodge. It changed in September 2012 to Philomena's, with the faux-Oirish makeover of the previous decades being stripped away, and the somewhat cavernous bar was lightened and opened up. A full renovation was undertaken earlier in 2013, and further improvements have been made. A self-proclaimed Irish Sports Bar and Cafe, it had featured one real ale for several years,and demand and a shift in the market has led now to 2 more handpulls. Big screens remain, and sports featured especially at weekends.
