Outside, it’s very Victorian. Inside, pleasant enough, but it’s had a pubco makeover sometime in the not too distant past. That’s not ruined it, but it’s a bit formulaic, but the beer was fine, the staff were nice, and there was nice outside space. It seems to be a nice community pub, just a short way out of town.
The pub’s page on Whatpub reckons this was built in 1958, which I strongly suspect is bollocks. The pub’s own site reckons it became a pub in 1958, being previously an off-licence, and it looks Victorian to me.
Whatever, it is a wonderful place. Multi-roomed, traditional in feel, great real ale, a friendly landlord, outside space, and cobs behind the bar.
Only minus point? Nappy changing, with running commentary, in the lounge. hopefully, that’s not a regular thing.
