About the Pub

Closed for approx 2 months from beginning of Jan 2020 for a comprehensive refurb and now reopened as The Alpaca - we were reassured this would not have any impact upon its listed features.

Three cask beers on an early visit although that might be one too many until people know it is back. Indeed a very recent visit found just 2 cask beers both in good condition. The operators seem to be linked to those operating the King William IV.

The drinking area comprises several distinct spaces around a central bar with a lot of original wood panelling. The social media accounts listed relate to the old operators and it is not clear if they will be taken over by the new operators. There is now a new upstairs seating area.

Historic Interest

Local Listing:- dual aspect on corner with Popham Street. Mottled green tile front up to window level, then plain green tiles up to fascia. Rendered green painted bases to pilasters. Smokey glass on lower 1/2 windows, leaded lattice window.
