Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Hat & Beaver

Looks from the road as if it has been modernised, but this pub remains unashamedly traditional inside. Retaining a two-bar layout, separated by a couple of steps, with the rear room having a small extension. Bass and two Cotleigh beers - Hawk brown ale (£2.40) and Honey Buzzard - plus Old Rosie cider available from the three handpumps on each counter.

The Hat and Beaver is a basic looking town pub that looked like an old John Smiths tied house from years ago with its colour scheme.
Once inside the pub still has two seperate rooms,i had a drink in the front room which is the bar,this room was quite basic with a tiled floor,the seating was bench type,there were two TVs on,one was showing Horse racing,the other showing the West Ham v Man City game.
There is a smarter lounge to the rear which is oblong shaped,the room was carpeted and had comfy bench seating.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Bass which was a decent drink,the other beer was Cottage Ghost Train.
I quite like drinking in basic pubs like this.

Not a vast amount to add to the comments below, especially Mr Dragons for detail.
The welcome here was friendly but on a chilly Tuesday lunchtime there was only one other punter in and this combined with a distinctly musty smell, slightly tired furniture and the artex mentioned by Mr Fastard made the Hat and Beaver feel less than warm and cosy.
The beer here though is good with Bass and Brew XI on as regulars and Cottage Norman Conquest MM as a guest when we visited. Everything we tried was in good condition and it's easy to see how, at a busier time, a good session could be had here.
Given the lack of decent beer generally in Atherstone, the Hat and Beaver would be my first choice in the town.
