This pub was originally the Rosemary Branch, more recently the Old Haberdasher, and now the ridiculously named Fat Walrus. This pub's interior has been totally gutted over the years. We now have esposed brickwork walls (obviously), reclaimed/distressed woodwork on the walls (obviously), and mainly uncomfortable tall tables/tall benches with a few normal tables and chairs at the back on the left. There's a bit of outside seating at the back.

The real ales on were Truman's Swift and Purity Mad Goose, with Weston Wyld Wood Organic cider also on handpump. There were massive glossy menus on all the tables - burgers are £10 or so. This is a characterless bar/pub that seemed to be popular with younger clientele when I was in. I doubt whether I'll be making a return visit.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Old Haberdasher

Set back from the road a bit by a front patio terrace behind a row of trees, this pub has been partly opened-out to leave a 'U'-shaped bar with a further seating area beyond on both sides (and a patio beer garden beyond on one). Given a makeover at some stage, but still fairly sparsely furnished and decorated. Doom Bar and Pride (£3.90) available from two of three handpumps. Not too bad, but smelled strongly of drains when I visited (and if they are aiming for a Parisian café ambience, this is taking things too far...).
