After a quick pint at the Kings Heads we headed along Southover High St to make my first ever visit to this attractive Harvey’s Brewery tied pub.

The public bar to the right as you enter has been converted over to a dining area with “all the drinking action” taking place in the private bar.

3 ales & 2 real cider both from Weston’s on the 5 hand pumps, I opted for a pint of Harvey’s Knotts of May, @ 3.0% it’s a perfect session mild. After commenting on the barmaid’s music choice that was playing on vinyl we took our drinks and headed out to the attractive patio that then leads onto the walled garden. Thinking the pub was empty was a mistake as all of the punters were in the garden enjoying food and the sun.

I’m not sure what I expected from this pub but I was genuinely surprised how lovely it is, being busier than the Kings Head it was easier to feel that theirs some atmosphere here, the bar staff were all fairly young and hip, which might not be to everyone choice’s but it works for me especially if they are enthusiastic and friendly.

Lovely pub, lots of character, good beer and a cracking garden and patio area.

Certainly worth the walk the “wrong way” from the station, scores 8/10 for me and yet another pub earmarked for a return visit.

Food as good as the Snowdrop but without the crowds - highly recommended. Idyllic beer garden.
