The reviews below nail the descriptive points fully and accurately.
I'll confine my comments to saying that this is a pleasant, historical boozer which offers a warm welcome, real fire and a range of Marston's ales.
Mr F addresses the elephant in the room as regards prices below - £3.80 for a 4.2% standard pint - and the pub doesn't live up to the hotel standards suggested by the prices but then again the loyalty scheme is available for locals.
Beers on when we visited were: Jennings Knight Porter and The World's Biggest Liar, Marstons Burton Bitter, Pedigree and Salute and Banks Bitter. I stuck to the very well kept Knight Porter.
Probably the best of the three town centre boozers and I'd happily return for a reliable pint.

This Marston's tied house in a genuine hotel with five letting rooms.The carpeted interior shows the buildings age with lots of beams,traditional if worn furniture and a real fire.To the right of the entrance there is a two level seating area with a door to the loos while the area opposite the bar has three banquettes.Beyond the fireplace there is a restaurant section.Horse brasses are dotted about and on the ceiling beams the collection of pump clips shows that non Marstons guests make an appearance,as do a wide selection of seasonal beers from their portfolio breweries.
The two ranks of handpumps,nine in total, offered a wide selection of Marston's beers and the Jennings Knight Porter was very well kept but at a shocking price of £3.80 for a 4.2% this far from London.A gentle enquiry revealed that the town is a magnet for tourists and beer and food is priced accordingly.However there is a 10% off "loyalty scheme",so if you get asked on ordering your second pint for a customer number,any random number will do.
There was a good mix of customer in on a Thursday evening,many eating from the snack or full menu,and a gaggle of locals who where spotted in other pubs later in the evening.Away from the restaurant section ,this had a genuine pub atmosphere and the service was friendly and efficient.
A good range of Marston's beers and a pleasing interior add to the attractions,and the number 35 worked a treat.

This is a decent looking pub with plenty of hanging baskets outside.
Once inside here the pub is now been opened up and has seating on different levels,the far end of the pub is for diners.
There were about 10 pumps on the bar and all the beers were from the Marstons range i had a drink of Marstons Pedigree and this was not a bad drink i also saw bank's Bitter,Snecklifter from Jennings plus a Jennings seasonal and the was also a Davenports beer but car'nt remember the name.
The pub was very busy and fairly smart inside i would be happy to go in here again.
