This is the the same locals' boozer that Alan found a year and a half ago. The fruit and veg market was on the go during my Wednesday afternoon visit. The pub's no longer carpeted, but still has the central island bar. The two piecesof screening, with their decorative glass panels and narrow doorways, separating the front drinking area into different areas are still in place (thank goodness - I think it's Victorian). There is an attractive entrance area on the left which has some excellent Victorian tiling still in place, being used as a smoking area all the time I was at the pub.

But, apart from the remaining superb original Victorian features, this pub doesn't have a great deal going for it for the discerning drinker. There's no real ale of course, and although I gather they do food, I didn't see any sign of it. The Guinness was OK though. I would say that it's worth dropping into to have a butcher's at the original features if you're into that sort of thing, but probably not the sort of place to spend any length of time. But it's great if you're a local and happy to drink Guinness and bogstandard lager. It gets a five for the original features.

The Enkel Arms is a decent sized corner pub that had market stalls outside it on my Saturday dinner visit.
Once inside there is an island bar and a narrow area to the front which is divided by old looking screens,the seating is normal tables and chairs and the room is carpeted throughout,there is a larger area to the rear which has a pool table.
There were no real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Tetley Smooth crap,which was crap,but cheap at £2.50 a pint.
The pub was fairly busy on my Saturday dinner visit and seemed friendly enough.

This is a local's pub serving up standard draught products to a mostly aged Irish clientele. In the bar area at the front there is a projector screen up on the wall which was showing the stereotypical horse racing on Sky. I did notice the bar area at the very front of the pub was section off from the main bar by a couple of original screens that must date back a while. There is also a large sparsely decorated extension at the back of the pub which houses a TV, pool table and a pinball machine.

My pint of Guinness was on good form and the barmen were polite enough, but I couldn't really get settled in here and I don't plan on returning.
