Former Vaux, and before that Wilson's house on the junction with Wellington Road. Two-room house with central bar that somewhat dominates the space as you enter the left-hand room. There is more space to be had beyond the bar though; all decorated very neatly. The separate, right-hand room is quieter and is similarly decorated. The pub had an off-on-off relationship with cask ales in the past, and indeed did sell cask ale for a year from Sept 2013. For a couple of periods in 2015 and 2017 it came under new management (following a fallow period) and was selling cask ale once more! Started selling cask again in 2022 as beer in pins became available on the Punch list.
