On a pub crawl on the 28th Dec, I was really sorry to see this nice old pub closed and looking very vunerable. As TalbotHill has written below, the offices next door have been demolished meaning that the pub has had to be held up from its front elevation using props and scafolding. I am surprised that this is acceptable to the Local Authority as the pub is grade 2 listed and the scafolding spills into the highway- and it is now an eyesore.
Although it was managed by County Estates (who have now themselves gone into administration), the pub's freehold is owned by the UK pension fund.
Offers anyone? It should be a gem...

Currently looking very exposed, now that the IBM building has been demolished next door - Remains to be seen what is built in its place. Probably more offices?

Still closed - Future even more uncertain!

Fine pub - mostly does lunchtime business - we chanced upon it on a private do one evening but had a couple of rounds and they gave us sausage butties to keep us going for a donation to the charity box.

Incredibly friendly and welcoming landlord and bar staff. What a lovely time we had in there. Very reasonable bar prices and my partner loves the Hobgoblin ale.
