This is a detached Flaming Grill pub/eatery with patio area and beer garden (once a bowling green). It is a 1920s rebuild, adjacent to a former pub of the same name - it also took out a Methodist Chapel when rebuilt. It is in the mock-Tudor/Jacobean-ish style, popular at the time; with large stacks, brick (with some beams) lower frontage, leaded windows, timber and beam gable. There is also some slate cladding. The interior had one room that i saw, irregular in shape due to the ripping out of the old rooms. Generally, there is a U-shaped room, around the bar, with side areas. Part is given over to a 'bar', with a dart board that is difficult to play, large screen (And several smaller) TVs showing sport and snazzy and rather arty sport photos. The rest is given over to dining and has the family feel, with the kid's grabbing machines and so forth - as well as a host more TVs. The decor is the mixed wall colour; red, clay, yellow, green, wood panel etc, but part has a lovely white moulded ceiling, cornice and upper wall. The music was general and quiet. The food is the usual burger and general menu, but i didn't eat so can't comment on that. The is one large fireplace in the dining area, a few smaller ones elsewhere. Some of the lights seem out of place - almost looking unfinished. The service was functional and the clientele family and very mixed. Beer; usual tap stuff with four handpulls, although only Thwaites Wainwright was on, and was fine. It felt a bit soulless to me.
