A fairly decent dog-friendly local just away from the tourist areas.  The front garden of this Georgian terrace has been turned into an outside seating area, screened off from the road, while the interior is described by Graham and Alan, below, and includes some impressive ornate columns where walls had previously supported the structure above.  The barmaid was very welcoming, though some of the young drunk yuppies who still haunt this area were a bit annoying.  Food was mainly pizzas, which was fine, plus some other bits and pieces at average prices.  Only one ale on, Sambrook’s Scrumdown, accompanied by Old Rosie on draught.  There was a large selection of overpriced craft beers: Beavertown Neck Oil and Lupus, Holy Hand Grenade, Pressure Drop’s Tambourine Mountain and Siren’s Suspended in Rakau, plus a craft lager, Fizzy Bubbly from Tiny Rebel.  Why on Earth do they have to come up with these ridiculous names? There was also a fridge full of bottles and cans of various beers.   I’d be happy to drop back in next time I’m in the area.

Modernised in a sensible way, this pub retains many old features and a good community atmosphere. Entering the one big room opened up around the large island bar, you can't however help wondering how much varnish it took to achieve the shine on the floor. Aged drinkers will recognise the original (and once hated) old Watney lettering preserved on the rear wall, with a more-recent but still now historic Watney Combe Reid Stag Brewery sign outside, where there is also a patio area screened from the main road. Draught beers on offer at time of visit were from Butcombe and Notting Hill, the latter sadly being a bit past its prime. A cider was on handpump also, plus usual keg/craft stuff. Full food menu but not sampled. Entertainments included bar billiards and a large collection of board games, with occasional live music.
