A traditional old Wadworth�s pub located in a small cul-de-sac just next to Montpelier health centre. It�s a good size pub, divided in to three rooms as well as an adjacent beer garden which looked to include a covered smoking area. It has a slightly bohemian feel to it and whilst there were a few �characters� around as might be expected in this area, there was nothing that made me, or Mrs. B., feel uncomfortable.

The main bar is an L-shape at the front of the pub and has a traditional pub ambience with wooden boards on the floor, some wood panelling on the walls, green paintwork, candles on all the tables, a selection of books on the window sill and an illuminated trophy cabinet. There were plenty of tables and chairs, a real log fire roaring away in a cast iron fire place and numerous old pictures on the walls. Background music was playing through some speakers which was perhaps slightly too loud, or at least too boomy. A combination perhaps of the music being played and the speaker being right up in the corner of the room.

To the rear is another room which had a plasma TV showing the football and a number of punters were gathered around watching. Hanging below the TV were a selection of colourful football shirts. Beyond this is a raised area with some wooden railing around it. There were some large floor standing speakers here as well that looked as though they may get pressed in to use for live music, and there were a number of posters on the walls advertising forthcoming bands. Up a few stairs to the right was another room with a pool table. Food offering seemed restricted to a few filled rolls behind the bar, but then this looks to be a pub that concentrates on drinking. Barmaid seemed friendly enough.

Beers were all from the Wadworth�s stable with their 6X, Henry�s IPA and Old Timer. Ciders were Stowford Press and Taunton Traditional.

Now the Wicked Witch of the West has gone, the OE is on the way back to being a decent pub again. It's now managed by the same team as the Farm and the Cadbury. The dealers have followed the WWW and the garden is once again a pleasant place.

Unfortunately, the garden is now closed at 11pm due to a recently-arrived NIMBY neighbour and our Beloved Council. I've been drinking there since 1973, but mo one asked me. Still, it's well worth a visit.

Davedavedave, considering your only three comments on this site are for this pub, I would say that you have some kind of problem with it, hence the negative comments.
I don't care what you think. Just wanted to present another side of the case for montpelier.
