The beer quality in here was sublime! No wonder it received a Camra award last year. We sat lounge side, which was very comfortable and stayed on for a while, chatting to the local postman, who also enjoyed this pub.

Some good detail on this thriving local boozer below.
It's easy to see why this place appeals with a good food offer, a decent range of beers and plenty of sport to watch on the telly. Long may it thrive as it's a comfortable and friendly place for a pint.
Beers on were: Salopian Shropshire Gold, Ludlow Gold, Ringwood Fortyniner, Courage Best and Pride. Not a bad range for what is essentially a back street boozer if a little heavy on the nationals. The Fortyniner was excellent and slipped down.
A very good local pub.

A mid terrace local with three distinct rooms.To the right of the entrance a narrowish carpeted lounge,to the left a room devoted to rugby with a large display cabinet,a flat screen,also carpeted and with fitted bench seating .Both rooms have bar access while at the rear of the building is a small restaurant with around 24 covers but pretty much full on a Monday evening.The smells coming from the busy kitchen next door were very tempting.Outside there is an A board listing different themed food nights .I didn't eat but it all looked well cooked.Live music also features in this back room,no doubt after food service has finished.
I liked the seperation given to the three rooms,this is a very comfortable pub to spend some time in.Six handpumps ,of which one was for cider,with a variety of national brands and an excellent Ringwood Fortyniner.
Deservedly in the 2014 GBG and well worth popping in for a decent pint or something to eat,dont miss this one if on a crawl around Cov.

A detached white painted brick terraced pub, with rear beer garden. Despite being Victorian, the pub has more than a Georgian look about it, with sash windows and stone lintles, but it does have a bay window with etched glass. In the GBG 2010.

The interior has three rooms, served by a central serving bar. The bar room is to the left on entry and there is a lounge to the right. The bar room (first visit)is in green and wood panel and is adorned with lots of rugby memorabilia, as well as a collection of Dinky toys and other bits of eclectic ephemera. There was a TV, which had the rugby on at our visit and there was no background music. The lounge (second visit) is in white and black wood panel walls, with a red ceiling and red carpet. It is decorated with various prints and pictures. The back room seems set-up for dining. It is in white and wood apnel walls, white and wood ceiling and also has various pictures. The service was fine and the clientele, sadly, just one other bloke up the bar.

Beer; tap stuff, with John Smith’s Cask, London Pride, Courage Best, Sharpe’s Doombar, Moorhouse Blonde Witch, Hook Norton Old Hookey and Timothy Taylor Golden Best on handpull. The Tim Taylor was a little flat (beer from first visit in 2010)

A nice place, with a super choice of beers and lots to look at if you are so inclined. Well worth a visit and somewhere I would more than happily return to.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Nursery Tavern

Backstreet pub housed in a long terrace so not easy to spot until you almost reach the place. Traditional layout comprising two small bar areas, one a cosy lounge with some old-fashioned memorabilia. Beer garden to rear. At least eight handpumps, offering Banks's Mild, Pride, Courage Best, Adnams Lighthouse, Pride of Pendle, Enville Ale, York Guzzler (£3.10) and old Rosie. Overall, well worth seeking out. (NB - Review dates from October 2011.)

I have just put some photos on site from my visit to this Good Beer Guide pub in April 2007. It is still in the 2010 edition. The beer range and quality were fine, but it was a pub to look round as all sort of collectables and sport shirts adorn the walls.
