Largely as described below with some surviving internal signage along with the claret Victorian/Edwardian wallpaper. Furniture is a mix of traditional and modern with a raised dining area to the rear where food which is now more gastro rather than the pub cop-out that is Thai. The large TVs were off-putting but were switched off for the Sunday night knees-up sing-along: On Mother Kelly's Doorstep, Leaning on a Lamppost, We'll Meet Again...the hits just keep on coming, delivered by singers whose talent varies greatly and carries the seal of approval of Jack Black.
Professional and friendly staff were serving up GK IPA, Moreland's Chicken Pox and Hardy & Hanson's seasonal Rockin' Rudolph which was a rather tired pint; flabby and warm as mentioned below.
There's certainly novelty value to be had in the Sunday jamboree but the mundane ale choice is something of a disincentive to return, though I wish its acolytes well.

Flat iron shape pub, giving it a nice external look. Single wedge-shaped room inside with a battered wood floor, maroon Victoriana wallpaper and a general air of bohemian shabbiness. I was rather taken with the very nice West End Wine & Spirit Stores ‘triptych‘ (what a great word) mirror thingy. I was rather less taken with the large TV over the bar showing a pointless music channel to nobody. Two ales over three pumps, GK IPA and Old Golden Hen, flabby and warm. It's ok for this area but that’s damning with faint praise I suppose - could be much better. 5.5

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Duke Of Kendal

This wedge-shaped pub has a cramped layout meaning that the outside bench seats come in very handy if the weather allows. A large triptych of plain mirrors (above which is the old slogan "West End Wine & Spirit Stores") dominates one side of the saloon, with the bar counter at the 'thick' end of the wedge. Somehow they have managed to fit in a small upright piano (which the event posters suggest gets a regular airing from Gilly most weekends). Several TVs showing sport. Dining room in the former lounge bar to rear. Two of the three handpumps were in operation, offering GK IPA and Bombardier (£3.60). Overall, much more traditional than one might expect, given the general poshness of the area.
