Blackthorn _ left this review about The Coronation

A traditional, back street pub situated just off Coronation Road, it was pretty much full to capacity on a recent Friday evening visit with a good mix of punters in.

Decor wise it’s quite traditional too with a wood strip floor, dark brown painted wood panelling on the lower part of the walls and very dark, almost black paintwork up above. There were a few small brown beams on the ceiling and some colourful artwork up above the bar counter. Seating was a mixture of red velvet padded bench seating around the perimeter, chairs and padded stools with chunky opine tables. A couple of TV screens were showing a Mission Impossible film, but the volume was muted so this was not too intrusive. A shelf above the bar housed an eclectic collection of objects including a dinosaur skeleton and a dalek.

Beers on tap consisted of a trio from Wickwar with their Bob, Star and Cotswold Way along with Doom Bar and Hopback Summer Lightning. Ciders too were well represented with three from Thatcher’s – Haze, Gold and Traditional and these were joined by Blackthorn.

train man left this review about The Coronation

Summer Lightning, Autumn Glow, Red Ember, GFB, Crop Circle, Downton New Forest. Plain long bar facing door, big pine tables, rock&roll soundtrack. Heard fellow punter offer barman a drink – he said “I'll have a bottle of Bud if that's ok”. No! That's so bloody wrong! Can't remember if he rescinded the offer, I would have.
