Corner pub with two separate rooms with their own entrances. No hand pumps - just keg offerings.

This is an inter-war pub that appears to cater for locals - plus the occasional itinerant pub reviewer. This remains a dying breed, and is usually a pleasure to find. This one has two separate rooms each only accessed from the street. I was told by a local that at one time you could walk between the bars, but now rather unusually a ladies toilet (i.e. a single cubicle - I believe) sits between the rooms. The bar back in the public bar on the left bears signage saying "Welcome to this Watney House" - and the bar back in the saloon bar has the same signage but being the saloon bar this sign is illuminated. These look like post war embellishments to me. The bar counters are original as well, with the one in the saloon bar having both piped and concave matchboard panelling - most unusual.

The place is carpeted and furnished mainly with normal tables and chairs although there are one or two tall tables/tall stools. There's another room behind the saloon bar that can be separated from the saloon bar with a sliding screen, with a garden at the back. A nice Bass brewery mirror sits on the wall in the saloon bar.

As you might expect in a pub like this, there's no real ale. But nonetheless it's a delightful pub, although a decent real ale would make it a much more desirable pub to visit, for me anyway. But there were quite a few customers enjoying the pub at early doors on a Tuesday, so it clearly appeals to the locals.

The Queen Elizabeth is a back street pub that looked quite nice outside with lots of hanging baskets,i also liked the look of the pub.
Once inside i had a drink in an oblong shaped room which was to the front,this room was part carpeted and wood laminate floor,there were two tall tables and chairs to the left with normal tables and chairs elsewhere.
There were no real ales on the bar,i had a drink of John Smiths smooth crap which was a pretty poor drink.
Background music was playing and the pub was fairly busy on my Saturday afternoon visit.
I thought this was a decent enough pub just a shame about the lack of one real ale on the bar.
