There is a good pub here struggling to get out ,but in it's current guise there is a huge ,lost oppoutunity.There is a hotel upstairs but I would suspect this is quite downmarket and guests may well be the people spending all day in the pub.The side door leads to an island bar in the middle which you can walk around.Not much furniture at the front,two pool tables at the rear but lots of wood panelling,some etched glass and a fine moulded ceiling but painted a gloomy shade of green.Original features still exist but a pane of glass to the front has been broken but just taped up rather than replaced.The flatscreen were all showing hurling and there were some Irish punters inside but the bar staff are Indian and were getting grief from a regular for not pouring a decent pint of Guiness which was totally unfair.My half was fine at £1.95 but the handpumps didn't look like they have been operational for a while.
It's a sad place,underused and could be so much better with some TLC.No reason to revisit in it's current state .

A splendid looking Victorian pub built in 1886. The pub has an historic interior of Regional Importance. The present layout consists of a central island bar with surrounded seating, which flows into a large backroom, housing two pool tables. Features here that interested me, was the curved lobby entrance, the elaborate plastered ceilings and etched mirrors.
Uninteresting feature was the two handpumps, one serving London Pride and one turned back.

This looks very much like a pub that has seen better days. It looks an impressive building from the outside, although the “E” and “S” were missing from the original gilded pub name above the door, with the more modern pub sign above it looking a bit incongruous. Inside all the original rooms have been knocked into one, with the bar counter in the centre of the room. This pub is also on CAMRA’s inventory of pubs with heritage interiors, and I noticed what looked like the original ceiling (painted dark “racing” green), cast iron pillars, as well as some cut and etched glasswork. But it has none of the Victorian grandeur of the Salisbury down the road. There was a big pull-down screen showing the Stoke v Wigan game when I was in, plus at least four other TV monitors around the room.
London Pride was the only real ale advertised when I was in, although there was another handpump with a GKIPA clip turned round. I ordered the Pride, but it tasted exactly like GKIPA, and the two ales are very different in taste, and I know the difference quite well. I mentioned this to the barman, who tried a taste and said I might have a point. I’m not sure what he did about it though. If he checked while I was still in there he didn’t let me know the result – but he was on his own and presumably that would have made it inconvenient for him to leave the bar. This is not a bad pub, and it was quite comfortable, but there was nothing sufficiently special about it that would make me want to pay a return visit.
