This looks like another very unprepossessing pub that appears to be stuck in a time warp. It retains its original three-bar format, though two of the bars are now connected by a small archway. But these are plus factors in my book. It has mostly banquette seating, with a few normal chairs and small stools. The original wood panelling on the walls is still in place; there’s a dartboard; and the tables are covered with (now rarely seen) dimpled copper. All in all this is an ordinary pub whose simplicity is its main attraction. There would have been thousands of pubs like this in London 30 years ago, but now, unfortunately, they are becoming rarer by the day. The arched, wood framed windows with what looks like the original leaded lights are particularly attractive. The only real ale on during my visit was Courage Best, which was in good nick, at the very good price of £2.55 a pint.

Fairly large comfortable pub that looks like it has not long been taken over by new landlords.Large horseshoe bar and 1 real ale on tap.
