A historic pub interior of some regional importance
Listed Status: Not listed114 Glengall Grove
Rebuilt in Neo-Georgian style by Watneys in 1932, much can still be appreciated of how things were then and so remained until change in 2017. The public bar, as so often, is placed on the corner and has hefty, lapped boards to the counter, something that was popular in the Thirties. This room has incorporated what was an off-sales detectable in a blocked exterior door now a window. The panelling, in Thirties style, is in fact mostly modern and cheaply done. The lounge and snug were amalgamated in 2017 but original features do survive, such as the fielded panelled and bar back and a still-working dumb waiter. There are pretty decorated plaster cornices. The character, however, has now changed due to liberal applications of pastel coloured paint which seems a hallmark of gastropubs in our times.
