See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Modern bar serving a changing array of live and keg beers from an array of brewers. This is a very relaxed and competently-run bar in which one could easily idle away many hours. Whilst it may seem large from the outside, beyond the extensive terrace with palm trees to the front, the bar area inside is not really that deep. Fashioned from two shops that have been knocked together, the bar spans the two areas with a rear snug fitted cosily in the right portion to the rear. In front of the snug a DJ will play records at weekends suitable to, and at a volume suitable for, the time of day and mood. The décor is very much a mix of past and present, with a 60s wall unit housing an old radio and other bric-a-brac, a painting of Christ’s last supper sits beneath a mirror-ball, and the light fittings are very diverse indeed. Coconut lampshades hang over the bar, whilst an old set of brass keg taps has been set into the ceiling above the entrance to the snug. A varied menu is available, consisting of modern British, and Greek meze; all the food is made on the premises, so no short-cuts are taken here. If you prefer a coffee and a slice of cake, then they cater for that too. Food served till an hour before close. NB: the pub does NOT take cash, it only accepts cards.
