You are in wine bar territory here. Its ok and it does do real ale but its more for the trendy diners.

This has much more of a restaurant / wine bar like feel to it than your traditional pub, but nonetheless seems a popular spot and we only just managed to squeeze on to a table on a recent Friday evening visit. The right hand half of the pub appears to be more geared up for dining, with the bar area to the left. There is also a pleasant looking courtyard to the side of the pub, which was still busy even quite late on a September evening.

It’s still got some traditional features such as beams on the ceilings, but has clearly had something of a contemporary makeover with a tiled black floor and rough, pale brown plasterwork on the walls. Seating was mostly wicker type chairs which are cropping up in many refurbished pubs these days, and all the tables had candles on them. There were also fairy lights adorning some of the ceiling beams, which may or may not add atmosphere depending on your point of view.

Beer choice was disappointing with just Three Tuns Rantipole on tap. The solitary cider was Thatcher’s Gold. This was served somewhat short, and was topped up rather begrudgingly, but even then still fell some way short of the rim.

Formerly the Warwick Hotel the bar has been expanded and there is now an outside drinking area , lots of bare brickwork and exposed beams , very food led and seemingly aimed at a more mature customer , apart from the barstaff i was the only under 50 in here , keg taps were Becks and Hoegarden with the only real ale a decent Stonehouse Station Bitter . Its OK in here but not really my sort of place
