Blackthorn _ left this review about The Lord Raglan

A surprisingly small, street corner pub which extends in almost (but not quite) a complete circle around the central bar. Decor is quite dated with artex on much of the walls, some white and some a sandy colour, black and white photos of various stars such as Elvis, blue velvet bench seating with red velvet curtains and a faded old carpet.

There is a (very) small stage area in one corner with a large rear projection TV and two smaller TV’s mounted up on a bracket, Christmas type gold and red foil strips covering one wall and a zimmer frame! Next to this is an open area with a dart board and another rear projection TV. There were two further TV’s across the other side of the pub, although these were the only two that were on and they didn’t dominate. I got the impression that they are maybe used more for karaoke or some such similar activities, but this was not in evidence on a recent Thursday night visit.

This seems to be very much a community local with plenty of activities going on. Besides the aforementioned darts board, there was a cabinet sporting a good selection of trophies, and two minibuses outside which appear to be used for transporting punters to away fixtures. It was just a shame that some of the locals seemed to be swearing rather excessively, which perhaps accounted for why there were no ladies present, other than the barmaid.

Beers on tap were Gem which seemed to be past it’s best and Courage Best. Ciders were better represented with Blackthorn, Strongbow and Bath Ales’ Bounders.
