One room with bar to the right. Four hand pumps - two reversed. Rest keg. Nothing spectacular.

A first in here the other night to what until 2003 was the far more sensibly named The Devonshire Arms, renamed as Inn 1888 as a reference to the year in which Jack The Ripper conducted his acts of charity - I wonder what Peter Sutcliffe's erstwhile local will be called 70-odd years from now?
The interior is on CAMRA's inventory of historic interiors, displaying fantastic majolica tiles, stained glass windows and cut and etched mirrors. Furniture is conventional and there are two open fires, all of which contribute to this being one of the most 'pubby' of pubs in the area.
Gone is the Thai food, replaced with dogs not because food is now Korean but because this is the faddish term for what used to be called hotdogs; there are burgers too and pulled pork.
Service was fine, but the choice of ales was a bit lacklustre: Greene King's Abott and IPA, 1888's house ale and Belhaven's Golden Bay which was OK but mundane; I didn't clock the prices as we were in rounds.
This is a very pretty pub and I'd gladly come again if in the area, but despite the finery it lacks a certain je ne sais quoi, perhaps due to it being largely an office workers' pub, devoid of locals.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Inn 1888

Rather innocuous-looking corner pub, with sparse furniture within a 'J'-shaped bar. However, the surprise is that much fine decorative tiling remains (as does some coloured glass in the partially-modified windows). Seemed a bit early, but there was already a DJ playing some decent music on a Friday evening. Unfortunately, the beer offering is nothing to write home about, with just Greene King (£3.80) and Abbot available from the two handpumps.
