Since being restyled as the Ashelea it has settled down in to a comfortable pub that does food welcoming the type of people who enjoy that relaxed atmosphere. Its location undoubtedly helps it avoid the bustle and noise of some of its High Street neighbours. It is deceptive in appearance because it is on two levels inside - the low-level to the right is where drinkers generally mingle, whilst the upper-level hosts the main bar, various nooks, niches and dining areas arranged off that. All of this is done in that slightly over-the-top rustic design, but it is believable. Four small rivulets meet under the cellar which aids cellar cooling. A quiz night is held Thursdays, whilst game features on the occasional themed-food night (ask for details). Handy for a walk in nearby Abney Park.
