Scaffolding on the outside has now been removed and the pub is due to reopen in 2020 (month not specified).

This is now a McMullen's pub with their Country and Cask Ale on, plus a guest ale of Whole Hop Brewery Flying Frog (£2.10 a half). When I arrived a fourth pump was unclipped, but by the time I left it had a handwritten clip for something called Hopping Mad, a 4.5% golden ale. I was in too early to see any sign of food.

It's carpeted, has banquettes around the sides, metal framed tables and small stools. All very traditional. The bar counter looks to be an original Victorian feature, and parts of the bar back are old, if not original, dating from 1900 according to the landlord. Unfortunately you can't see much of it nowadays, as bits of wood have been attached to it to provide shelving, and it's otherwise obscured by optics, bottles, cans, notices, an old till and some drinks machines. But some cut and etched glass is just about visible with the brewer's name (Charrington) in the top centre, and the pub name is at the bottom (but obscured by bottles). There's also a cast iron pillar with a decorative capital, plus a small vestibule at the entrance. This apparently used to be a seven room pub. There are disused doorways now of course, but I can well believe the claim to seven rooms.

As decor there were old (mainly whisky) bottles on the bar gantry, a shelf with books and knick knacks at one end, plus miscellaneous prints on the walls. I also saw a TV (of course), a juke box, and a quiz night advertised for Mondays.

It was very quiet when I was in before noon, so impossible to judge the atmosphere when busy, but it's comfortable enough and both the landlord and barmaid were friendly and chatty. I liked it in here. It had the feel of a traditional pub about it and it's the sort of place to which I'd be happy to return.
