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

Characterful corner local retaining a twin-bar layout, separated by narrow gap. There is a great selection of theatre memorabilia and vintage ephemera to look at in the lounge, and the side patio beer garden is a fine spot when the sun's out. Three real ales on handpump: Doom Bar, Ringwood 49er and Goldmark Warrior (£1.85, half).

A former Whitbread house this, judging by the metal ellipse over the sign frame. This is an attractive corner pub with plant boxes atop the first-floor parapet.
Inside, and there are loads of knick-knacks to keep the drinker entertained including an old wall-mounted candlestick phone and the pair of can-can legs protruding from a wall. Furniture is eclectic, the floor’s carpeted and there’s some matchboard painted green to the walls up to about waist height.
Out back there’s a very verdant beer garden with an old Gales sign which may have come from the Portland.
I plumped for a half of Goldmark’s Warrior which tasted ok to me if uninteresting but was told by a colleague that it was slightly off.
This seems to be a jolly place and I’d be happy to sample it again.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Phoenix

The lounge side of this establishment had some novelty factors to keep you enthralled. You enter the lounge either from a tight squeeze in front of the bar area, especially when drinkers are loitering in front of the pumps or the easy option is to use the separate lounge door, accessible from the street. When entering the lounge you will immediately see a pair of ladies Can-can legs sticking out from over the bar. An old wind up mounted telephone can also be found on the right of the bar counter, an upright piano opposite and a collection of photos around the walls of actors and comedians who have visited this pub. I went for the Goldmark Warrior on handpump.
