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

The pub is leased to Almond Pub Co by owners, Greene King, this is now the sixth house in the Almond portfolio (correct as of 2019). All follow the same pattern, with a very high quality carvery being centre stage of things. The character of the building has been retained, and probably enhanced given the prior years of neglect. The street entrance leads direct to the long L-shaped, and visually impressive, bar along the left side. To the right is mostly seating and tables for those just wishing to drink, beyond that is a large conservatory room housing the majority of those wishing to dine. The carvery is located beyond the end of the bar on the left, this area has dining tables too in what was probably the former billiard room. Decor is stylish, yet traditional: plenty of panelling, old prints, and various objects dotted around give it the feel of a country house. Large outside patio area at rear for fair-weather drinking (and potential barbecues too). A very large car park is there as well on what was probably a bowling green in years gone by. History: Closed 14/1/18, there followed a long, and very thorough refurbishment which saw it re-open in mid-2019 now being run by Almond Pub Co under a Greene King lease. Prior to this it was a large open-plan pub with three levels giving three distinctive areas. It had a long L-shaped bar with two handpulls on the main length, at the far end round the corner. At the time the pub attracted a good clientele of young and old imbibers. New management came in early 2013 which saw improvements such as doubling the guest beers.
