New build red brick Wetherspoon Free House occupying vacant infill site, opened in late February 2003. Entry is through a quarry tiled courtyard open to the elements, with patio seating. The ground floor bar has dark wooden wall panelling with red decor above and a yellow painted ceiling and yellow lighting. Family area to left with high backed seating booths, and local history panels above. The pub's name, 'a lost alley approximately on the site', is displayed on an illuminated screen behind the bar with variable colours. Abstract paintings include an image of Bob Marley, apparently commemorating a mural formerly visible on the flank wall of the building next door. Wooden stairs lead up to first floor bar decorated in similar style leading through to an open air patio (with heaters and potted plants), on a balcony overlooking the quiet street at the rear.
