This pub is on CAMRA's Regional Inventory of pubs with historic interiors, essentially due to the Victorian bar counter, and bar back with intricate columns. Unfortunately these have now been painted a horrible sort of violet colour in place of the natural wood that it used to be. As I recall there were four ales on, but unfortunately I failed to note them, possibly because this was the final (eighth) pub on crawl of Bath in which I was engaged. I didn't see any sign of food.

The downstairs bar mentioned by Blackthorn is still there, but unfortunately closed during my late Saturday afternoon visit. There is also some more seating upstairs, but seems to be for the theatre that's up there.

I thought that this was an OK pub. It's certainly not a destination pub, but was handily placed fairly near the station for a last pint before hurrying off to catch my train.

A tiny single room bar on a street corner near the abbey, although there is also a downstairs bar which is open in the evenings. The pub itself is a traditional layout with a bar in one corner, bench seating around the edge, some wood panelling and large windows on two sides.

A real (gas) fire was blazing away which was a nice touch on a freezing December afternoon. There are a couple of fruit machines in one corner with a plasma mounted up above, although this was not in use on our visit. The back of the bar is a very ornate wooden carving and there was some Bath Rugby memorabilia dotted around such as signed team photos and shirts. This is one of the nearest pubs to their ground, and gets packed on match days I would imagine.

Despite the name of the pub, the beer selection was fairly pedestrian with Jem, Courage Best and London Pride behind the bar. Ciders were Blackthorn and Gaymer’s Pear.
