11th Sep 2012 - Not my first visit and this time we sat inside in what is labelled bull s**t corner. Its on a brass horsey type piece of tat (of which there are many) that you get it lots of pubs usually without bullshit corner written on it. Anyway it felt right and was nicely busy. Its a dark wood pub with some red carpet. Its not large and the bar takes up most of the room with a little space at the front and a corridor down the side of the bar with a shelf to rest beers on. Out the side door is an alley which is covered and usually has a few smokers. Also to the rear is a courtyard with some sort of art gallery in it. Also I learnt the pub used to have a different name but due to the coach drivers who used to stop at the courtyard all playing chequers it was renamed. Stupidly on the one occasion i'm actually adding some history I didn't note the full information so I have no recollection of the previous name. Doh. One of the staff had ordered an extra plate of food by mistake and was kindly offering it around for free. Eventually someone took it. Im a little shocked I didn't but I was about to go for dinner and it would have been a tad greedy. Nice if not exceptional Pub with a few decent ales on but not an extensive list.
