I didn't even equate this as a hotel bar as to me it was more pubby. Sadly there were only the 3 real ales on and the place seemed a bit down in the mouth. Probably just worth a visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Old Fourpenny Shop Hotel

Compact, slightly split-level hotel bar with the larger seating area by the main door and the busier bar section located up a couple of steps. Tidy, if old-fashioned, furniture and decor. Well known as an alehouse, though, with Greene King IPA supplemented by a pretty decent selection of mostly local ales (e.g. Weatheroak Bees Knees, £3.00).

Quinno _ left this review about Old Fourpenny Shop Hotel

A cosy, unthreatening hotel style bar, carpeted and tidy. Room as you enter with fabric banquettes, up a step to the bar with a rear dining area beyond. No bleeps, TV or music. Friendly locals. Six ales on, Sadlers JPA, RCH Pitchfork, Slaughterhouse Saddleback, XT2, GK IPA & Abbot. My half of XT was in good shape. Quite quiet on my afternoon visit, would try and catch it in the evening next time.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Old Fourpenny Shop

We were looking forward to our visit here as it's a proper pub serving up six real ales. The downside to our visit was the miserable and grumpy old bag serving behind the bar. She was so rude, I asked her what her problem was. My Old Pie Factory pale ale was on the turn, so we did a sharp exit. We were told later at another pub, that if the Irish manager was there, we would have enjoyed our visit. Bad timing for us then.

Another favoured haunt for us locals, great beer and a nice open plan feel. Thursday nights appear to have become a social night for a group of friends who play their various stringed instruments. Not exactly like the in pub entertainment you stereotypically see in Irish pubs but if you like good beer and some live and not too intrusive music then give it a go.

A great place to visit after a night at the racecourse which is just 2 minutes away, and last but certainly not least it has friendly, well informed staff.

Name dates back +/- 150 years when the canal was being cut. The 'navvies' could get a pot of beer and a pie for 4d (2p) here, which was 2d cheaper than elsewhere!
The hotel suffix is of a much later vintage!
