Tris C left this review about The Peasant

We arrived on Tuesday around 9.20 to find this large pub completely empty.

It's an impressive interior space and much has been made of the George & Dragon motifs and ornate ceiling; very fine they are but what a tragedy it is that the owners saw fit to change the name in 2001 to The Peasant.

There's a function room-cum-restaurant upstairs and about half the tables at ground floor - the good ones, near the front window, where you would like to sit - are laid for dining, relegating drinkers to the rear by the flame effect fire and bogs. Furniture is fairly traditional with candles and flowers on the tables; muted music played. Overall the effect is a bit dark but not intolerably so.

The two barman were friendly enough; ales on offer: Bath Ales' Gem, Hammerton's N7 and Crouch Vale Brewers' Gold. This was decent enough and at £4.00 a pint, about what you'd expect for the area.

I'd come here again, but only if in the very immediate area - it's certainly better than the duff Blacksmith & The Toffeemaker up the road, but empty at this time with dining tables gathering dust, I wonder how they can carry on...

Aimed to come here Saturday evening and found the lights on but locked with a sign on the door saying closed for a private function,a wasted walk.

Quirky interior with original tiled pictures juxtaposed with album posters. 4 real ales and food served.
