This has apparently been done up, but on passing today I wouldn't have known that from the outside. I assume the money got spent on the inside!

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Boy & Barrel

Very basic - and small - town-centre pub of a type that has almost vanished in large parts of the country. No money appears to have been spent on the place in decades, but this has the minor advantage that it still retains some interesting features such as the decorative glazing in front and side windows. Narrow bar with limited seating apart from a reasonable table at the front, a few high stools opposite the bar and a couple more small tables further back. One TV plus some dubious-looking remnants of what might be a karaoke system. No real ale, so it was a quick pint of John Smiths Extra Smooth (£2.00 during the day-long happy 'hour') and I was off...
