Quinno _ left this review about The Boardroom

A large modish place in brown and turquoise with an island bar and high ceiling. Four pumps round the far side with 2x Dawkins beers; Chocadee (flat and taken back and off) and Best, cardboardy and aspiratored to death. Made good my escape, what a waste of time!

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Boardroom

Recently re-opened under a new name, it has had something of a spruce up in terms of the décor, but the central bar counter remains and the rest of the layout is also unchanged. The flooring is dark stained wooden boards whilst the paintwork is predominantly cream with green woodwork. There is some exposed brick walling at the rear of the pub as well as a large wince cooler. Some high tables and chairs were along the left and there were some arty pictures on the walls, much of it food related. The high ceiling and arched wooden window lend it a rather elegant feel.

We didn’t study the menu, but charcuterie boards seem to the main focus here and the friendly landlord informed us that there was very much an emphasis on local produce and he reeled off a few of his suppliers. It seems that you can select from their various choices to build a board to your own requirements, and some of the produce was showcased in a small deli counter to the right along with a hand operated slicing machine which apparently produced wafer thin slivers of meat.

Unusually there were no cask ales on tap, but following the current vogue for “craft beers” there were perhaps a few interesting keg options. I use the word “perhaps” as the pumps clips only contained a logo rather than any text and I did not see a board or anything else listing what was available. I did spot something from the local micro Wiper & True as well as something from Camden. Ciders were well represented though with Weston’s Twist, Weston’s Still Perry, Wyld Wood, Mortimer’s Orchard and Sandford Devon Red.

All in all I thought this had a nice, relaxed vibe in contrast to many of the more hectic places nearby, and the landlord explained that he is certainly going for something a little more chilled and relaxed, although they are nonetheless open until 02:00 on a weekend. I will no doubt return in the new year to check out the food offering.

Blackthorn _ left this review about The Elephant

A pleasant enough pub situated a short stroll away from the hustle and bustle of Corn Street and the centre. The pub is all one open, high ceilinged room wrapped around a central island bar. There are large arched windows along the front of the pub whilst the flooring is rough wooden boards with cream paintwork on the walls. Seating is some very chunky wood tables and bench seats. The barman seemed friendly enough.

We didn’t eat on this occasion, but the menu looked to consist of concise selection of “pub grub” dishes with options such as Fish & Chips, Sausage & Mash, Burger, etc., and these were mostly priced around the £10 mark. There were also a number of pizzas available and a chalkboard was advertising the Sunday lunch.

Beers on tap were their own Elephant Ale plus Cornish Knocker and Tunnel Vision. There was also a pump for Cheddar’s Bitter Bully, although this was off when we visited. Ciders were Aspall’s Suffolk and Thatcher’s Gold.
