On the bar counter are two beautifully polished black, brass surmounted handpumps. Unfortunately they seem to be solely for decoration now. The landlady told me that they had attempted to sell real ale but hadn’t been able to shift it. Shame, but one can hardly expect her to stock something that doesn’t sell. The pub is bare-boarded, but in a traditional sort of way rather than the shiny varnished floorings we sometimes see in gastropubs. Furnishings are normal tables and chairs. On the whole it’s got a fairly Spartan interior, with little or no decor, although the dark stained wood panelling on the walls looks in keeping with the place. There’s an interesting, sort of hidden, room at the back with just a single pool table in it, reached either through a pair of glass panelled swing doors to the rear and right of the central bar counter, or a small doorway directly behind the servery. A secret garden is also advertised – not visited during my February visit, but no doubt reached through more glass panelled doors at the rear of the main room. These glass panelled doors look to be the pub’s best feature in my opinion.
I didn’t see any sign of food or menus during my Monday afternoon visit. I reckon that this a fairly decent little boozer, but I don’t expect that I’ll be making a return visit as I doubt whether the landlady will chance her arm on the real ale front again.
