Soup Dragon left this review about The Grapes

A large detached undressed brick pub and eatery, with patio areas. It looks 1930s, hard to tell in the dark - but has an ornate columned entrance to add a bit of character.

The interior has three areas. To the left on entry there is the bar. It is a two-piece room. The main part is in green and white, with red ceiling and has a dart board, a TV (had Come Dine With Me on) and a fireplace, with a nice fire going - the other part, in white and a coffee colour looks like it was a little pool table annex once, but now has a dart board as well. Sporty stuff is on the walls and this part of the pub was very busy with a mixed clientele. To the right on entry there is a lounge area, which had a couple of people in. This area is in coffee, pale green and a silver wallpaper with red pattern on it, along with a white ceiling and a fireplace with a small fire. There was a TV, but not on. General Victorian styled prints were on the walls. Further round, at the back there is the dining area, where i did not wander and as i didn't eat, i can't comment on the food. There was general music at a decent level and the service was friendly.

Beer; no real ale, all the usual keg stuff, but they had Banks's and Highgate MILD, which was pretty good for keg

I liked this place more than i expected, considering i go for real ale first - it had clear bar, lounge and dining areas and a good atmosphere - i was more than happy i had popped in.
