Large Fuzzy Ed’s which is basically a child-friendly deep-fried “feed the family for a tenner” eatery, with a separate children’s play area. Housed in a 1930’s roadside building, it's actually decent inside - a large brown and magnolia effort with lots of discrete seating areas and in a godd state of repair. No ale available, so a Guinness sufficed. It is what it is and I’ve been in worse examples of the genre.

This is a detached All-Inns pub, eatery and kid's playhouse, with a patio area. This is a 1930s pub, a rebuild of an earlier pub, of the same name, on the same site. It is a little un-typical of this kind of estate pub, being irregular in shape, but it is mainly in undressed brick, although some is white painted. It has been recently refurbished. The interior has a large, irregular open-plan room, which is in the usual array of colours; white, pale green, red, chocolate, claret and wood panel. It has comfy seating, high stools, booth areas and so forth, with old photos on the walls juxtaposed with arty ones. There was also a screened-off area, which had a 'hologram' fire. Still, it is family friendly - although it was mainly maturer people at my visit - and the food had just stopped being served. The service was fine. The TV had a silent programme on and music was soft and mixed. Beer; usual tap stuff, with GK IPA and Bombardier (clip turned) on handpull. Faced with this, i had a shandy. It looked really tidy, but alas, a little soulless, as these places do - i mourned the loss of the old 80s pub that I frequented on a few occasions.
