There was no real ale on in here, and nor did I see any sign of food. My half of Guinness was £1.85.

Unlike the other pubs that I had been in today, this one clearly had a heating system in place that had managed to heat the place up to a habitable level. Or maybe because it was later in the day whereas the others I had visited soon after opening? Anyway, I was pleased to be able to get warm again in here. There were one or two bucket armchairs around the place, a single tall table with tall stools at which the three other customers were perched, but furnishings were mainly banquettes with normal tables and chairs. There was a pool table, TVs on showing Loose Women, and a couple of fruit machines, and that's about it.

There's a photo of the pub on one of the walls, with a note saying that it was taken in 1910 and that the pub was built in 1896. but WhatPub says the current pub was built in 1928 and I have to say that it looks more inter-war than Victorian to me. There's some original (grey-painted) matchboard panelling on the dado; cream painted matchboard panelling on the ceiling; and what looks like the original bar counter (now grey-painted).

This looked to be a decent little watering hole, which would obviously be greatly improved with the provision of a decent real ale.
