Blackthorn _ left this review about The Curfew Inn

A Wadworth’s street corner pub a ten minute walk from the town centre. First impressions weren’t good with a couple of youths stood outside spitting and swearing. Hopefully they’re not regular clientele so I won’t hold that against it.

The next problem was getting to the bar. Although there were only about half a dozen people in the pub, they were all clustered at the small bar, many of them sat on the high chairs that were there and seemed reluctant to move even a few inches so I could get there to order. This is a pet hate of mine, especially when the rest of the pub is empty and it really doesn’t create a very welcoming atmosphere.

After we’d got our drinks and sat down, things started to look up. The pub itself is a pleasant enough space with plenty of thick wooden beams on the ceiling, although how genuine these are I’m not sure (sat at the very front of the pub and looking up, this in fact seems to be a false ceiling, a couple of feet below the real one). The floor is mostly wooden boards, although a small area on the left is carpeted and also has floor to ceiling wood panelling and a large mirror. To the right is a brick fireplace with a wood burning stove and a number of local pictures adorn the walls. A couple of boards advertised the fact that a new menu was coming soon.

The bar counter itself is a wood panelled affair with a couple of spiral wooden pillars at each end. Whether the building was at one time a chemists I’m not sure, but there were some old wooden drawers behind the bar labelled as Throat Lozenges, Stomach Pills, Tooth Powders, etc. Down a few steps there is a small landing with a solitary table and chairs, and another flight of steps leads to a patio area with some wooden decking.

Beers on tap were Wadworth’s 6X and Henry’s IPA. Ciders were Weston’s Old Rosie and Stowford Press.

A small, two-level pub heading towards the top of the hill. The large ‘no drugs’ sign on the door doesn’t bode well, as does the chipboard slab in place of a presumably broken glass pane on the door. Four ales from Wadworth (IPA, 6X and two seasonals). My Mild was a bit ropey. The interior sports dark wood panelling with some interesting features, especially the bar back (is this from an old chemists? It has some wooden drawers labelled with various Victorian pharmaceutical products). World Cup themed sandwiches to be had, which was a nice touch. To the rear is a small sun-trap garden. Some of the clientèle were ‘salt-of-the-earth’ types.

Worth a quick visit if you like quirky interiors but that’s about it.
