One room with the bar to the left. No real ales - just keg rubbish.

This is really more of a restaurant than a pub, but there are a few seats/tables on the left that can be used by those just wanting a drink. There was no real ale obviously, and I didn't bother to look at a menu.

This is an old Victorian pub originally called the Knave of Clubs. I was in there to have a butcher's at the original Victorian features, of which there are still several. The (now unused) door on the left leads onto a mosaic tiled floor; and where there is original tiling on the dado. And on the wall here is the piece de resistance, three gilded mirrors mainly advertising drinks and the like, but the centre one still bears the original name of the pub. The bar counter is original, as is the most unusual pillared canopy supported above it. It's all quite spectacular, and a great shame that this isn't still a pub as we know it.

If you're looking for a pub experience with good ale, then steer clear of this place. But it's most certainly worth a peek at the original Victorian features. It doesn't really score anything as a pub, but I'll give it 5 for retaining a fair amount of its former glory.
