A converted house, displaying some attractive Morland décor, this pub has been knocked through to make it what it is today.
A first in here the other night to a pub which seems aimed at a younger crowd, possibly with a live music bent alluded to by the spotlights and mirror ball in a corner, offset by the mauve and purple walls which look a bit rundown. The floor is part flagstone and part bare boarded with a bar to the rear, furniture is conventional.
Ales: Morland's Old Speckled Hen, Shotover Brewery's Oxford Trinity and James Street's own house ale at £1.90 a half and poor.
This really isn't my bag so a return is not on the cards.

Molested interior but has a bit of character. Ten pumps but only six on, a mix of GK and micros including three(!) from White Horse and an unknown-to-me Fisher & Co solicitors ale (good condition but a nasty beer). Main bar area has dried hops, fairy lights, candles on tables and a couple of ornamental pistols. Paintwork battered round the edges. Nicer seating areas to left with a booth and some exposed brickwork. A room round to the left housed an upright piano and a small stage with a band setting up. A decent ale and music pub and I’d give it another go but I didn’t feel a real affinity for the place in same way I did with the Fir Tree.
