There is a sign outside saying "Under new management, refurb in progress, Re-opening early 2014"

Apparently it re-opened on 1st June. Interior has been re-done and the old-world style pub has gone and it's now much brighter and more open. There's still the large restaurant at the back. Larkins & Doombar on pump, both good. Food was excellent and reasonably priced, overheard the chef offering to cook "anything they wanted" for the next table - probably not on offer normally, it was pretty empty at the time. Hope they make a go of it this time, don't know how much trade this place attracts as it is in a bit of an out-of-the-way location.

I hear on the grapevine that this pub is now closed.
Haven't be able to visit it myself to confirm this yet.

Purely for reasons of convenience, or lack of, I hadn't been able to visit this pub for around 7 years. Upon entry it became immediately apparent that a significant refurbishment had taken place. Previously it was a warm, welcoming, traditional and cosy local. Now, it has the distinct whiff of interior design about it, with a more open-plan layout and decidedly contemporary twists such as flowery wallpaper on some walls but not others, "comfy" furniture and so forth. Despite its modern makeover though, it doesn't lack warmth, and some key traditional features have been retained, such as the log fire and chimney breast. A vast range of pictures have been affixed to the ceiling, which is an unusual but not altogether unwelcome addition.
As for the food and drink, only 2 handpumps now remain, but happily the Larkin's Trad is still served, and to a good standard too. The usual range of lager adorns the bar. Although the friendly barman denied the pub has "gone gastro", it clearly has upped its game with regard to victuals - a range of very appealing modern dishes featured on the specials board (shame I had already eaten).
It is plainly no longer endeavouring to be a farmer's local any more, which in a way is a shame. That said, I imagine that to secure increased trade (and survival) the owners have opted for the food avenue as the best means of achieving this. If they fail, it won't be because of the food or beer quality/range, or the decor: it will simply be the remote location. A notice had been placed in the gents to say that they will no longer be opening on Mondays - I do hope that doesn't denote a flagging business.

Went on Friday night for some dinner and a couple of pints. Not busy at all, but we both had good quality tasty food and the Larkins was well looked after.
Friendly bunch running the pub, good refurb in line with a few of the places in the area now - but defo retains plenty of the pub feel. Would recommend.
