Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Jameson

Angled corner pub with a small patio in the triangular area left at the front. Difficult to tell whether the 'L'-shaped bar has always been one open space, but the rear room has been opened-out to form The Parlour seating area. Curious green paintwork and a right mix of furniture in various traditional and modern styles, with a pool table squeezed in near the grand piano. Not having visited for eight years (when it was still called the Fox & Hounds, I wasn't 100% convinced that I would find any real ale, but there proved to be a serviceable pint of Butcombe Bitter (£4.50) available from one of the pair of handpumps. Overall, a modest improvement.

There were two ales on when I dropped in on Wednesday afternoon - St Austell Tribute and Brains Rev James (£2.20 a half). There were menus at one end of the bar but I didn't get to look at one, but they clearly do food.

There are several distinct drinking areas, with curtains seemingly able to separate at least three of them. The end room on the left is The Parlour, is furnished with armchairs, has a lampstand, a painting of a lady on a horse on one of the walls, and is I guess intended to look like your granny's drawing room.

The dominating feature in the remainder of the pub is the grand piano. There are a couple of tall tables/tall stools; a bank of settles complete with cushions in the centre of the room; some upholstered bench seating; and loads of normal tables and chairs. The colour scheme's mainly green - dark green ceiling and light green walls. The windows are quite small, which makes it either quite gloomy, or cosy and intimate, depending on your viewpoint.

Although the desired chintzy effect is quite contrived, it's still quite nice and comfortable inside. There were several locals in on Wednesday afternoon enjoying some convivial conversation. The Rev James was in good shape as well, even if the price was a little steep for a backstreet locals' pub.

Within the last five years the Fox and Hounds has been renamed Jameson which is an attractive pub with seating out the front that is overlooked by hanging baskets brimming with flora. Plants also overhang the top of barrels and I noted the presence of a barbeque.
The large interior is L shaped and during my visit on Friday afternoon a couple of weeks ago the back section was curtained off. I did manage to have a peek as the friendly landlady told me that the toilets located downstairs were closed for repairs and I was directed to the disabled toilet at the rear. I discovered some comfortable seating that is also found in the front area of the pub and a piano that may be used for the jazz, bluegrass swing and blues nights; the next of which was due to take place the following Sunday.
Standard draught is available from the bar and the two hand pumps were off, but apparently XPA is usually available.

This is a comfortable pub that I would consider popping back into if I was walking past.
