Blue Scrumpy left this review about The Townhouse Pub

Entering this old townhouse up a set of steps, you arrive into what would presumably have been the house's front room, which contains plenty of seating. I didn't notice the pool table mentioned in the previous review, but my first aim was to find the bar! Continuing through this room and turning right takes you into a larger room which contains the bar. Beyond that is a conservatory, a garden and a smoking area.

All customers were sat in the bar area during my visit. This was fine with only 4 or 5 customers present, but just 4 high tables with stools, people would soon be forced to retreat to the conservatory or the front room when crowds arrive. A DJ booth in one corner of the bar suggests that it can get crowded at weekends.

3 East Anglian real ales were on - Woodforde's Nelson's & Volt & Mauldon's Jester. I had the latter, which I quite enjoyed whilst lingering a while to wait for more Ely pubs to open. Real cider has been discontinued. A selection of traditional pub games were available at one side of the bar.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Townhouse

My first impressions were that the outside did look like a hotel. Once through the doors, to our immediate left was a pool room. Then on into a rear large room and bar. A small conservatory led you out onto a small patio area.
Five handpumps on the bar, four of which were ales and one cider, named Pickled Pig Cider. Our service was quick and formal, so I went for the Mauldons Suffolk Pride which was good, whilst Mrs A went for the Buntingford Brewery Twitchell. We got into conversation with an elderly chap at the bar, who told us he was ready to make a sharp exit as the nights entertainment was about to start. An eighty year old singer and guitarist, so obviously he wasn't a fan.
We asked the Polish barman for a taste of the Silk's Brewery Old Man Shirv, which had gone and was undrinkable. The young chap poured some more, necked it down and replied that it was in top condition.

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

Bit of an odd layout - you climb a few steps and enter through the pool room before reaching the fairly plain bar area. Extended through to a rear conservatory. Side patio smoking area. Food stops early at 7pm. Four of five handpumps in operation, with Little Sharpie, Oakham JHB, GK Personal Best (£3.00) and Pickled Pig cider available. (NB - Review dates from August 2012.)
