Update to my previous review. The Cavendish Arms is now having a market every 2nd Saturday of the month. Stalls in the front garden and in the ballroom. Real ale on sale now. Update on my update, should have done this earlier, market no more.

There was just one handpump on the bar counter - it had a sparkler on the nozzle, but unforunately there was no cask attached to it. The usual fizzy stuff was available, as well as Red Strip and Tiger lager (£2.05 a half). I didn't see any sign of menus or food on Thursday evening, but I did spot a table at the end of the bar bearing condiments, so they must do food at some times.

This post-war pub seems to comprise two separate rooms. The room on the left - the "Back Room" seems to be used for live entertainment, but it didn't seem to be open when I visited on Thursday. The room on the right might be best described as the saloon or lounge bar. It has a well worn carpet, is furnished with a gang of sofas and armchairs taking up the middle of the floor, with some banquettes and normal tables and chairs round the edges. There were little tea lights on the tables, some books and prints on a ledge by the windows, and a chalkboard on a pillar just inside the door provides a "Welcome to the Cav".

This is a very "red" pub, with the carpet, walls, sofas, and ceiling above the severy all this colour. There are a few benches in an enclosed area at the front. This is actually quite a warm and friendly pub - at least it seemed that way when I visited, although there were only a couple of others in there. A decent ale would be a massive plus though. I got the impression that the handpump does get some use, so maybe I was just unlucky.

Has had a refit. Still no real ale. No seating at the bar. Quote from their business card. 'A comfortable & welcoming pub with a beautiful flowering garden & an intimate classy live music venue. Hosting live music, stand-up comedy & cinema Sunday in our glamorous Ballroom music venue. Plus pub quiz, comfy sofas, separate lounge bar, friendly staff, eclectic mix of background music, gourmet pies & mash and an accoustic open mic night'
