Craft and real ale bar, with a black but tidy frontage and a rear patio. Modern decor: with plank wood, brick, wood panel, plaster, metal, ducting and so on. Fairy lights and such like, too, with mixed art. The clientele was younger based, but I didn't feel uncomfortable and the service was friendly. TV wasn't on and the music was at a decent level. Not the cheapest place. Beer: Craft and continental beer with three real ales at my visit - I had the Robinson's Dizzy Blonde and the Tiny Rebel Fugg Life and both were fine. I enjoyed it here.

A long boarded room with a very slight return at the far end. Lots of exposed brickwork with the plaster roughly hacked off retaining the ceiling cornices and a bit of jagged plaster below. A fair few rustic style tables and striped upholstered benches built across the side bay windows facing the side passage known as "King's Court". There are exposed services at ceiling level and also uncovered steel rsjs which would be a problem to me if assessing the fire strategy of the building in my field of work.
Towards the front, on the same side as the bar, is a square box of pigeon holes, each containing an apple. No further comment.
Four handpumps, the day had Robinson's Dizzy Blonde, Poynton Brewery Co Idaho (£3.80) plus their Vulcan and Squawk Brewery Co Pale Ale. Food menus on the tables only offered a selection of "Light Bites" but this may have been related to the time of day, I noticed a board listing Sunday roasts.
There is outdoor seating around the back in King's Court itself with rather upmarket looking furniture. Another decent new venture at this end of town, there is a very good crawl possible now in the area with The Craftsman, Tavern on the Green, Costello's, Pi, Jack in the Box and the Belgian bars close by.
