A Wadworth�s street corner pub a ten minute walk from the town centre. First impressions weren�t good with a couple of youths stood outside spitting and swearing. Hopefully they�re not regular clientele so I won�t hold that against it.

The next problem was getting to the bar. Although there were only about half a dozen people in the pub, they were all clustered at the small bar, many of them sat on the high chairs that were there and seemed reluctant to move even a few inches so I could get there to order. This is a pet hate of mine, especially when the rest of the pub is empty and it really doesn�t create a very welcoming atmosphere.

After we�d got our drinks and sat down, things started to look up. The pub itself is a pleasant enough space with plenty of thick wooden beams on the ceiling, although how genuine these are I�m not sure (sat at the very front of the pub and looking up, this in fact seems to be a false ceiling, a couple of feet below the real one). The floor is mostly wooden boards, although a small area on the left is carpeted and also has floor to ceiling wood panelling and a large mirror. To the right is a brick fireplace with a wood burning stove and a number of local pictures adorn the walls. A couple of boards advertised the fact that a new menu was coming soon.

The bar counter itself is a wood panelled affair with a couple of spiral wooden pillars at each end. Whether the building was at one time a chemists I�m not sure, but there were some old wooden drawers behind the bar labelled as Throat Lozenges, Stomach Pills, Tooth Powders, etc. Down a few steps there is a small landing with a solitary table and chairs, and another flight of steps leads to a patio area with some wooden decking.

Beers on tap were Wadworth�s 6X and Henry�s IPA. Ciders were Weston�s Old Rosie and Stowford Press.

Nice enough pub serving Wadworths., but so quiet on a Saturday evening - where were all the customers at 8.00? Only us 3, plus 3 "interesting" locals

Cosy little pub with a nice enough selection of ales etc, has a bit of character.

Nice friendly pub but getting a bit pricey.

Last time I was in here, I was thrashed at pool by Rumpole of the Bailey. More recently I looked in, saw it was empty, and moved on.
