This pub is run by the people who used to have the nearby Wm Hawkes before they sold it. This one is in a similar style with lots of old pictures and other tat all around the place. 6 handpumps, all on during our visit. Both the pints I had were in good nick. The second one was bought by the owner, who promptly went into Anti Vax, Conspiracy theory crap. Here's "proof" that David Bowie is still alive was one of the total bollocks stories he went on about. He probably has to buy people drinks to force his audience to listen to all his crap. Nice pub though.

A veritable cornucopia of reclaimed victoriana awaits the visitor here, however I've no idea how much is original or imported or copies. Six pulls of local stuff plus a few kegs. Dozens of pump clips are affixed to the (fake) beams plus there are more old signs, photos, and newspapers than you can shake a stick at. The furniture is in keeping with the general oldness theme. Not unpleasant and the beer’s good it's just that the fake decor is overdone, and I nearly burnt me cap on the fecking table candle.

Newly opened traditional style pub, housed in a former printers (hence the name). Run by the same team behind the nearby Lion & Key and Wm. Hawkes.
