This local back street hostelry has been variously a stables, a munitions factory and a funeral director's office. It is now a no-frills (although still friendly) one bar boozer, refurbished in a minimalist modern style, though with plenty of woodwork including a planked floor and a dark beamed ceiling. Seating is on a few upholstered wall benches and a sofa, and a few stools and tables scattered around the central area. It attracts an interesting cross-section of drinking society but mainly the younger drinker, and the lively, sometimes boisterous atmosphere (especially evenings) reflects this; there is a pool table, and large TV screens show continuous pop videos or sport as the occasion demands - the continuous piped music can be fairly loud and this is supplemented by live entertainment at weekends.
