This is a 1928 rebuild, slightly set back from the site of the Victorian pub (rennovated in 1889) as the road junction was improved (widened). The original pub had pig-stys! It is a detached bub, built by the Lichfield Brewing Company. The Jacobean building has twin front-facing gables and is in exposed brick, with the lower half rendered in yellow. Two small bay windows are flanked by symmetrical entrances that now serve the same room, but were once two separate rooms (smoke room and bar). To the side of the pub are entrances to what were an outdoor and the now lounge but was described on the original floor plan as a 'tea and women's room' and a smoke room from the elevations.

The interior now has two rooms. The smoke and bar rooms have become just the bar and the 'tea and women's room', the lounge. Both are served by a central wood panelled island bar. The bar is a straight room with two recesses, one at each end, each with a fireplace (one red brick fire, one plain). The decor is white and beam walls and ceiling with a mainly wood floor (some red tile). There is a dart board, and lots of old plates, trophies, as well as photos are on the walls. There was no TV and the music was general and soft. The lounge was in a cream patterned wallpaper, cream ceiling and a green carpet (some red tile around bar area). It had green seats and the copper topped tables. Mirrors and prints were on the walls, and more plates and this time, Tea-pots were there for decoration. There was a small gas fire and coloured glass lampshades. The place does rolls for food. The service was friendly and the clientele more the maturer type.

Beer; the usual tap stuff, with Banks's Fine Fettle and Banks's MILD on handpull - the MILD was fine

This pub is great, far better than i expected. I will be back, a pleasure to visit.
