Real Ale Ray left this review about Garricks Head

The interior of the pub is quite tastefully finished in keeping with the splendid exterior. The pub is close to the Theatre and attracts the pre theatre drinkers. The pub wasn't mad busy on our Friday eve visit, but the service was slow, due to people choosing wine and paying on plastic. The bar had a choice of four ales, so we went for the Box Steam Brewery Leaf Kicker, which was quite pricey in here.

Located right next to the theatre this is a two-roomed pub that has a suitably arty feel to it, perhaps at the expense of it’s “pubiness”. In many ways it has more of a wine bar feel to it. Ceilings are high, and there are large dual aspect windows with black and white tie-back curtains. A fire was roaring away on a recent January afternoon visit which was very pleasant. It was also very busy, with barely any standing room. This made it very difficult to get to the bar as there was a group of punters stood at one end and another group sat up on stools at the other, leaving one small gap in the middle. Fortunately the barmaid was able to see beyond the front row and service was prompt enough.

Paintwork is a rather plain cream with some black woodwork. Four large silver serving platter covers were stuck on the wall above the fireplace. There was a large board listing some menu choices, but in spite of the size of the board there were only about half a dozen choices. Whether this was just a specials board I’m not sure. Other boards listed the wines that were available and a dozen or so “beers” available by the bottle, although many of these appeared to be lagers. There were a couple of leather sofa’s at the front, and candles on all the tables. A smaller room to the right looked as though it may have been more geared up for dining, although we didn’t investigate this.

An unusual selection of beers on tap with Palmer’s Best, Redemption Ale and Green Laner. Ciders on tap were Pheasant Plucker and Orchard Pig, although a board also listed Kingston Black and Broadoak Perry. I’m not sure if this was draught or not. In addition to this, hot mulled cider was available from a barrel at the end of the bar.
