Cosy enough place and was surprisingly cheaper for drinks than I thought it would be.

Staff a little in your face with the yes sir no sir thing. But certainly worth a stop for a quick one if doing a pub crawl of Lyme.

About all you can expect of a hotel bar on a main street (one can imagine the coaches rolling up in days of yore) and the mess that is Oxford's Mitre should take note. Mind you, it's nothing scintillating and a preponderance of holidaying senior citizens means it is never going to rival Hackney's Pembury Tavern for hipsterism. Competent and worth stopping off at.

The bar area is a little formal although the interior is quite nice an cosy. My sole purchase in here was a pint of ale from the local Town Mill brewery which was blood temperature and flat. If that's the best they can do then I definitely won't be going back.

The trouble with putting the cask ales through a python is that after the first pint of the day, the rest will then be far too cool. The ale comes straight out of the cellar which is directly below the bar here (nearly saw the barman fall through the open flaps). using a python is just an excuse for poor bar / cellar management. Since the beer here is always too warm, I suspect the cekllar cooling is not working. Some money needs to be spent on fixing it.

This is a nice hotel bar. Bright, clean and the staff are good. I accept the warm beer criticism. They need to investigate installing an Ale Python Cooling System which stops the beer warming up in the line. The first pint out, currently, is ghastly.
Maybe dim the lights a little and abolish the fire screen that hides a little treasure! They also welcome dogs which is a big plus ~ especially where food is served. Thank you!
