E TA left this review about The Painters Arms

A Victorian corner pub in the back streets immediately behind the High Street. The original building is largely intact, but the décor is a mess (ironic, given the name) and rather unappealing, although there are one or two interesting features – etched windows designating the former bars and the ‘jug and bottle’ element. There is no real ale, no WiFi, no decent food and no warm welcome on offer. Indeed, the landlady was rather hostile and the locals mostly ignorant, particularly the aggressive smokers ‘guarding’ the door from tourists and other itinerant drinkers. I really didn't like it here and shall gloss over this one in future.
