This is still a Bath Ales pub, and as well as Gem, which seems to be the only Bath ale you get in London where I live, it also had on Spa; Prophecy; and Barnsey. Also available was St Austell Tribute and Cornish Orchards Farmhouse Cider on handpump. I was in here on Saturday afternoon, and although I didn't see a menu I did see someone tucking into a burger.

This pub is quite a bit bigger than is immediately apparent from the outside. There's a seating area on the right as you enter adjacent to the counter, with more seating in a room that goes back on the left. As far as I could tell all furnishings were traditional, so it struck me as a comfortable enough pub. There was a fair bit of gastro grey about, but there again nowhere's perfect. I liked this place and would be happy to visit again, but there again I do like Bath Brewery ales.

A very well presented pub, with a ground and first floor. The pub dates from the 18th Century and has been revamped to create that period. There was a choice of six Bath Ales on our visit, so we went for the Forest Hare, which was ok, but am not a Bath Ales fan.

This building has had many different uses and it is only in recently memory that Bath Ales have converted it to a pub and been quite clever in recreating an ale house vibe.The ground floor has two sections,both with wooden floors with the bar towards the front.Lots of bar stools ,a few benches and round tables,it's not that large but good use is made of mirrors throughout the interior.Muzak was blaring out,more annoying that likely to create an atmosphere.Upstairs there is a dining area ,completely empty on my Saturday evening visit with a very dull looking set of pine furniture.
The real let down at this GBG 2016 listed house is the real ale.The offering on my trip was Bath Gem,Barnsey ,SPA ,Summers Hare and one from their "craft" operation Beerd Monterey (clear,well kept but dull as ditch water ).A real cider occupied the sixth handpump.
If you like Bath Ales this pub may suit,I dont so will avoid in future unless the takeover by St Austell ushers in something more interesting to drink from the Cornish brewer.
