A nice old stone pub, with a little courtyard garden behind and local ales on offer. Pleasant without being exceptional.

A cosy old pub in the heart of Stamford. First impressions were “are they open” as the solid, wooden door was firmly closed. On pushing it open and squeezing through the narrow opening though, you find yourself in an attractive single room pub with sagging ceilings and plenty of black wooden beams and a couple of wooden support pillars to hold everything up.

The bar counter is off to the left and this is a smallish area with a few tables and chairs. To the right is a marginally bigger area with the seating being mostly low bar stools and small round tables, plus some green leather bench seating in the bay window. The flooring is reclaimed boards and there is also some exposed stonework on the walls, although much of it has been clad in wood panelling below with some newish looking plaster above. This room also has a wood burning stove in the fireplace and a plasma stuck on the wall, although this was off on a recent visit. Instead they had some low background music on which was much more agreeable.

Food is only served at lunch times, as seems to be the case with most of the pubs in Stamford, if they do food at all. Beers on this occasions were Woodford Wherry, Abbot Ale, London Pride and Timothy Taylor Landlord. Ciders were Aspall’s Suffolk and Strongbow.
