Cavernous Greene King pub with an island bar. Several hand pumps, nothing of any strength. Loads of TVs on the walls. Not worth a revisit.

Impressive exterior with an equally grand interior that still retains most of its original fittings and layout. Central U shaped bar serves 7 real ales and "craft keg".

An attractive well preserved interior with wood and glass screens, original tiling to two entrances and a side room and wood panelling to the former billiard room at the rear. Jug and Bottle, Private Bar, Saloon glazed doors and screens all remain. All has been well documented already however. At the front, to the right of the outdoor seated area is a gated off passage with a building beyond which looks like it may have been the original stables.
Inside, the bar is central and serves different areas, but the main room is the larger space and was where the handful of drinkers were located during my afternoon visit. Part wood floored, carpeted in another area, seating is mixed with a few sofas and high tables, but mostly for traditional. There are a few TVs dotted around and the main fireplace has a selection of games on top of the mantle. A fairly modern piano sits against the rear partition.
The menus and faux chalkboards detract from the surroundings a little, but this is a Taylor Walker branded pubco place so that goes with the territory.
Beers were not too adventurous being Pride, Bombardier, Old Speckled Hen and Youngs London Gold. I went for the London Gold which was perfectly drinkable.
Worth a visit for the interior if nothing else, however I found this cavernous place to be a little spiritless probably due to the lack of customers at the time.
