A tucked-away small corner local of around 1868 which was, fortunately, saved in the face of a closure threat in 2001 by a vigorous and effective local effort. The Pineapple has been opened up and there is now a single bar that wraps round the serving area. Here, you’ll find a truly spectacular feature – the bar-back, a three-bay piece, and one of the best such examples from the mid-Victorian period anywhere. It’s made of mahogany and has, at the top, panels advertising ‘whiskies’, ‘brandies’ and ‘wines’ in painted and gilt glass. Dividing the panels are florid Corinthian capitals. In between are etched mirrors with urns bursting with foliage and, below them – pineapples! The bar counter seems original as is the marble fire surround on the left-hand side. There are also some fine mirrors with advertisements, a pretty cornice all around the front bar and dado panelling round the walls.

Also noteworthy are the double entrance doors each bearing the wording Saloon Bar, and the two panels in the windows either side, one stating Ind Coope and the other Double Diamond.
