A long established Sam Smith's house with several areas including a few little recesses. Mostly carpeted but with some bare boards, traditional seating with banquettes, chairs and small tables. A side room off the main bar contains a dartboard and the upstairs room which can be hired has a pool table. Various framed prints of town including the market and Stamford New Road from years ago.
The fireplace doesn't look used, certainly the one in the main bar. Only OBB on handpump at the usual low price.
The landlord was a bit grumpy especially as a couple of blokes were mocking the new Sam Smith's zero tolerence of swearing by enquiring whether certain words counted as swear words, all rather amusing. A nice traditional town pub, a better ale selection would get this place a decent mark indeed.

A pleasant enough pub with friendly customers on an afternoon.

Very traditional town centre pub of the sort which is getting ever rarer. The interior doesn't look like it's change in decades, and the same goes for some of the regulars. The are several drinking areas and nooks and crannies. It's a Sam Smiths pub, which means it sells only Sam Smith's products, which are to some an acquired taste. However it's a taste worth acquiring given the extremely good value. Just OBB on handpump. It is in an odd corner of town behind a car park but worth seeking out.
