The Old England is a decent looking pub that i had problems finding.
Once inside i think this the pub has been opened out since the last review as there seemed to be a single T shaped room which was wide at the front where the bar is and narrows towards the rear,the room is bare boarded and the seating bench type and normal tables and chairs,the rear area is up one step and the far rear is up another step and could double up as a stage.
This is a Wadworths tied house so i was well pleased,but the pub seemed to be in a bit of a mess and under no control when i first went in and on the second time i went in it was still the same in a mess,there were Wadworth beers on the bar,but they could not use them as the landlord had not turned up to sort them out,so i had to have a drink of Guinness when i would have prefered a drink of Henrys IPA.

A traditional old Wadworth's pub located in a small cul-de-sac just next to Montpelier health centre. It's a good size pub, divided in to three rooms as well as an adjacent beer garden which looked to include a covered smoking area. It has a slightly bohemian feel to it and whilst there were a few "characters" around as might be expected in this area, there was nothing that made me, or Mrs. B., feel uncomfortable.

The main bar is an L-shape at the front of the pub and has a traditional pub ambience with wooden boards on the floor, some wood panelling on the walls, green paintwork, candles on all the tables, a selection of books on the window sill and an illuminated trophy cabinet. There were plenty of tables and chairs, a real log fire roaring away in a cast iron fire place and numerous old pictures on the walls. Background music was playing through some speakers which was perhaps slightly too loud, or at least too boomy. A combination perhaps of the music being played and the speaker being right up in the corner of the room.

To the rear is another room which had a plasma TV showing the football and a number of punters were gathered around watching. Hanging below the TV were a selection of colourful football shirts. Beyond this is a raised area with some wooden railing around it. There were some large floor standing speakers here as well that looked as though they may get pressed in to use for live music, and there were a number of posters on the walls advertising forthcoming bands. Up a few stairs to the right was another room with a pool table. Food offering seemed restricted to a few filled rolls behind the bar, but then this looks to be a pub that concentrates on drinking. Barmaid seemed friendly enough.

Beers were all from the Wadworth's stable with their 6X, Henry's IPA and Old Timer. Ciders were Stowford Press and Taunton Traditional.
