Our Friday lunchtime visit found this modern interior pub very much functioning as a restaurant and I think we were the only people in who were not eating. Modern gastro pub open plan style which I imagine functions a lot better as a bar in the evening when the food service has stopped. But at lunchtime it is almost devoid of atmosphere except for the noise of clinking cutlery and munching. Fortunately there are still a good choice of traditional pubs in the area so we didn’t linger long, despite the fact that the two of the three pumps that were in operation were dispensing decent enough pints of TT Landlord and Sambrook’s summer seasonal Pumphouse Pale Ale.

The Tommyfield is a large corner pub that is almost opposite the Dog House.
Once inside there is a largish oblong shaped room,the bar is situated to the rear left,there is a narrow raised area which runs down the right side,this area seemed to be favoured by diners,there is also a very small raised area to the front left,the main area had a mix of seating types,there was a large screen about three quarters down the room showing rugby,there is an open kitchen to the rear which is also on a raised area.
There were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Sambrooks Pumphouse Pale Ale which went down well,the other beer was Taylor Landlord.
This pub is a gastro type place but i was happy enough drinking in here.

The same three beers were on yesterday so naturally I gave the Roundhead a try, a decent drink it was too. The pub itself has been subjected to a serious restyle, there are raised areas to the perimeter on both the front and side with the rear part having a couple of booth areas. The main floor is all high tables made of metal as if to deliberately make them even more uncomfortable than the wooden cushioned versions. Large areas of the walls are tiled but there is some exposed brickwork which is easier on the eye.
To the rear is an open food servery, a chalkboard lists the menus broken down into the categories of FISH:PIES:GRILL. Steaks £14.50-£18.50, burgers £9.50-£10-50 (wild boar being the cheaper version oddly), fancy sounding pies (wild boar, rabbit, venison) £12.50 with mash and greens.
The fold down big screen was not in use and some low key music was playing; further entertainment is available as there is a bar football table. Upstairs is the "Master Room" but I didn't take a look.
As is so common these days all essence of tradition has been wiped out in this place leaving a noisy echoing barn, who it is supposed to appeal to I don't really know. A reasonable beer choice rescues it to a certain extent but it really isn't to my taste.
