A very traditional pub hidden in an early 19th.century terrace near the centre of town that looks more like a house, and still sells beer from casks behind the bar. A passage runs down the left side of the interior and at the front of the pub is a very traditional small bar where good conversation is the main draw. It has a bare wood floor, a 1930s bar counter, old bar back shelves, wood-panelled ceiling, casks of Bass on a stillage, old dado panelled walls and a log fire. On the ceiling are the beer prices for the period 1982 to 1988 - a pint in 1982 was 52p and in 1988 was 92p, an increase of 77% in just 6 years whereas whisky rose from 45p to 62p i.e. only 37%. At the end of the passage is another bare-floored bar with wood-panelled walls of various ages, a more modern bar counter, a new brick fireplace and an old basic bench. The outside gents' and ladies' are now under cover. Up seven steps is the recently created 'sky lounge' with tables and heaters for smokers and anyone else who wants to join them.
