A nice traditional pub in the backstreets retaining two separate sides. The main bar area has an adjoining room with a stone fireplace and a piano. To the back is a nice glazed room overlooking a surprisingly large garden. The right hand side is a lounge bar, which at time of visit was full of twerlies eating lunch. An Everards pub, the beers are mostly theirs with Adnam's Bitter on as a guest. The Old Original was in excellent form. Note it does not stay open all afternoon.

Aged building, and there’s a bit of character here if quite middle class in scope. T shaped inside, a sunken area to the left with a tartan carpet and piano (tuned?), all rather cosy and convivial. 3x Everards beers and Adnams Broadside. My Broadside was very good and was enjoyed sat in a rocking chair. My companions Everards were less stellar however, which took the lustre off things a bit. It’s worth popping in to sample, I think. 6.5

This is an old pub that hasn't been trashed by Everard's but retains two separate rooms with a further area at the rear just before the large garden. I went in the left hand side which has a small bar area and a carpeted area to the left with low tables. This room includes a 1970s Ruddles mirror but the 1974 GBG reveals that this was a Melbourn's house, an old brewery in Stamford.
There are five hand pumps in each bar with an Adnam's guest turned and Everard's Beacon, Original, Tiger and Sunchaser.
I went for the Original (£3.70) which was in excellent nick.
This is a fine old pub, my only minor issue with it is that £3.70 for Original is a bit steep compared to other Everard outlets.
