A second visit here, I can't remember my last so this place probably doesn't leave much by way of a lasting impression.
Given the location, this is now yet another Greene King pub so you have an idea what to expect. The location also ensures that there's an endless supply of transient tourists: here today, gone tomorrow with all that entails.
The interior is relatively long and narrow with the bar running along the side. Upstairs there's a lounge bar with even more sport TV which can be seen downstairs, with the sound off so as not to interfere with the loud music. The floor is part bare boarded and part carpeted with a tiled bar apron and the overall colour scheme is part white and part blue/grey. The bar back seems to be a mix of the original and part modern tiled. Furniture is a mix of the conventional with tall tables and chairs beneath the windows which feature attractive etched glass, though I suspect that nowadays this is probably a stick-on plastic transfer. Some vestiges of the original interior seem to remain in the form of short partitions with cut glass mirrors which reflect the sauce bottles and laminated menus on the tables as well as the flashing lights on the games machine.
Ales: one pump unclipped, thereafter Greene King IPA, St. Austell's Tribute and Wadworth's 6X at £4.55 a pint and slightly off.
This may on paper be a more 'traditional' boozer than The Portman over the road but the latter is definitely the superior. This is very much a tourists' pub and I think I'll leave 'em to it.

This is a Taylor Walker pub, but the ale choice was seriously limited with only Courage Best, London Pride and Bombardier on. A fourth pump had a clip reversed, but I couldn't make out what it was. The usual pubco pub grub menu is available here.

This one follows the usual Taylor Walker formula with masses of tall tables/tall stools cluttering up the main room, but with a further area around to the right of the servery furnished with normal tables and chairs. Being a TW pub there's dark wood everywhere, and some of it is the original Victorian fitting, including some screenwork at the back containing etched and cut glass panels. The bar couter looks to be the real deal as well. The floor's carpeted in the main, with a bare-boarded space near the door, and a black and white splash area surrounding the bar counter.

Like so many TW pubs, this one falls firmly in the OK category. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with it but, apart from the rather nice bit of screening, nothing that would induce me to go out of my way to re-visit it. The ale selection doesn't really cut the mustard either. Nonetheless, I'm glad it's surviving, and seemingly doing a reasonable trade to boot.
