Doom Bar and Spitfire were on, and the latter was in decent nick. I didn’t see any menus when I was in on Wednesday afternoon, but I did see a barmaid holding a plate so maybe they do some food. This is still a two-room pub, with both rooms reached via a vestibule – I firstly ventured into the right hand room, but when I realised there was nobody in there and I could see the handpumps on the counter in the other room then that’s obviously where I headed. This room is bare-boarded apart from a tiled splash area around the bar counter. There’s a raised area at the front by the windows, as well as at the back to the left of the bar counter. Furnishings are traditional, with no sofas or tall tables/tall stools.

This is a very ordinary pub. The beer was OK and not too expensive as I recall, plus it was reasonably comfortable inside and the service was friendly enough. I’m glad this one’s still here for the locals to enjoy, but it’s certainly not a destination pub.

The pub has separate bar and lounge rooms, accessed independently from the entrance lobby. The lounge is the larger room occupying the single storey section of the building that looks like it might be an addition. This room is wooden floored, has a couple of corner shelving units with books, plates and so on, and a large engraved mirror with the pub name. Traditional style seating at normal tables. A raised area to the rear and a smaller one at the front under the window that looks like it might double up as a stage. There is a TV on a bulkhead wall.
The bar is smaller, carpeted and with small round tables.
Service wasn't quick, despite the pub being quiet as the lone barmaid seemed to think flirting around with some bloke in the other room more important. Three handpumps, Spitfire (£3.20), Flowers Original and Pedigree. There was no sign of food apart from the usual snacks and nibbles.
A fairly nondescript pub really with no obvious original features or points of interest. It reminded me of many urban pubs from twenty or more years ago. I looked in as I was in the area and no one else here seemed to have but there isn't really anything to entice me back. The beer was fine though it should be said.
