About the Pub

Confirmed as reopening from 17 May 2021 subject to Covid constraints.

Grade II listed ornate terra cotta faced pub with two Jacobean-style frontages, first licensed in 1847 and rebuilt in 1891-2 by the firm of Gordon Lowther & Gunton. Dark wood panelled bar with large windows and high ceiling. Some etched glass remains and some Biba-style decoration in the upper parts of the windows. Smart, soft lighting. In the small area at the back (originally a separate room) there is an interesting Classical fireplace which may be modern. Elegant corridor with ironwork entrance and large mirror bearing heraldic arms, presumably of the Drayton family. There is an upstairs 50-seat fringe theatre showing mainly comedy and cabaret. Small outside tabled area off the pavement with heaters. Four cask ales.
