See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
There are several unused sets of doors, testifying to its former multi-room format. In fact it still is effectively two rooms, with the back room reached via an archway to the right of the front bar on the main road. It’s mainly carpeted, but with a smallish bare-boarded area to the left of the main bar, where the pool table is sited. Furnishings comprise a banquette or two, but are mainly standard chairs and smallish round tables, and there’s a traditional tiled splash area surrounding the bar counter. Shelves above the bar back contain some nick-nacks such as scales, vases, stoneware jugs and the like, and a shelving unit near the pool table contains sporting trophies. Wall decor consists of various prints. There are two real ales available, London Session from the nearby London Beer Factory and a changing beer from Trumans. This is a comfortable and friendly locals’ pub.
