A prominent triangular-shaped pub with two bars of some interest. That on the corner, once no doubt compartmentalised (n.b. three front doors), has a striking Victorian bar back with a glazed inscription recalling a former owner and/or licensee: WHOLESALE F.J.HOBSON RETAIL FINE & SPIRIT STORES. The left-hand part now looks rather stranded since the counter has been cut back to create access to a bar behind. The second room to look out for has a Victorian quadrant-shaped servery with a particularly fine L-shaped bar back and some fancy columns: the counter has relics of doors, once used to access the beer engines for servicing. Enjoy these historic features and try to ignore the unbelievable amount of other clutter at this popular music venue.
