About the Pub

The word Shades was originally a generic term for cellars and this pub was just ‘The Shades’ until rebuilt in 1898 by Treadwell & Martin in the Gothic-influenced Arts & Crafts style. Note the jokey pub sign outside! Grade II listed, this long, narrow, wood-panelled pub widens into a waitress-service dining room at the back. A gilded cupola with stained glass panels lights the central bar area, which has an impressive Victorian tiled front. Accompanied children are welcome at any time. Six handpumps; ale prices reflect the very central location.

As of early 2019 Youngs operate this pub under a leasehold agreement.
