About the Pub

Fantastic interior décor - with a rich ceiling, original bar counter, island back bar, screen partition, etched and cut glass and very decorative cornice. A Grade II listed building and listed by CAMRA as having an historic pub interior of national importance. There is a separate dining area - suspect this was the former billiards room - and the meal times above are for the restaurant, bar food is available throughout the day. What was a separate side entrance for the hotel has now been incorporated back into the pub creating a small side room. Opposite The Tricycle Theatre. In 2013 the owner/licensee took the unusual step of removing all draught beer in protest at the pricing policies of the large Pubcos for, although owning the freehold, he remained a tenant of Enterprise to whom he was leasing the property! However, in Dec 2015 the pub tweeted it was free of tie and draught has returned. However, more often than not, cask beer was unavailable or patchy at best. By May 2019 the handpumps had been removed.
