Street Corner pub with a prominent maroon awning drawn down to give cover to a series of pic nic benches running below the frontage.
The interior also has a maroon theme,it's a sqaure room with a carved wooden ceiling ,other wood work and the bar picked out in the same colour.Bench seating in salmon runs around the walls,while the pictures are of rock royalty.There was a subtle but good soundtrack and food is a major draw here with a lot of punters eating but still drinker friendly.
The menu looked good with a median main around £15 smelling great.At the bar there are three handpumps but only two serving on my trip Marston's Pedigree and Purity Mad Goose (NBSS 3.5,tasty and served in a correct glass).
The three women running the place were friendly ,chatty and not unattractive which always helps.Better than I expected ,worth a stop for a decent pint.

Built in 1812 as the Marquis of Wellington, only to be upgraded to the current name six years later.
Rex sums it up rather well, in that this is now really a restaurant masquerading as a pub. There’s white wood linenfold-style panelling to around two thirds height, then burgundy paint up to a modern field panelled ceiling of the same colour. The floor’s bare boarded, the bar is curved field panelled with a new-looking wood and mirrored bar back, the top utterly cluttered with used glasses. Furniture is moderately normal, with cloth upholstered banquettes to the perimeter. Lighting is minimal, coming from wide, shallow shaded lamps with reflective surfaces, filament bulbs barely aglow. Décor – in as much as you can see it for the gloom – are rather pretentious arty framed prints.
The barman was friendly, with one pump reversed, then Pedigree and Mad Goose at a very reasonable £4.70 and good.
Customers were very mixed in age and almost certainly local.
This is more a bar/restaurant, rather than traditional pub, but it gains an extra mark for having the imagination to not serve either Doom or Pride and at realistic prices too.

In may ways this really seems to be more of a trendy wine bar than your traditional pub, with it’s chunky wooden tables, each with a candle on as well as some small candelabras in the window and reclaimed wooden floorboards but it’s a pleasant enough place I suppose, although it was very noisy on a recent Friday evening visit.

It’s a light and airy place with large, dual aspect windows, a dark maroon ceiling and leather bench seating around the perimeter. There is also a small amount of outside seating. There was an extensive wine list chalked up on a board next to the bar, which unusually listed the vintage as well as the grape and the vineyard. These were all available by the glass and there was a further wine list available in addition to this.

Beers on tap were London Pride, Doom Bar and Black Sheep. They also had Addlestones cider which made a pleasant change from most of the sweet, fizzy concoctions that you get around these parts.
