This pub in Upper Belvedere has had a total refurbishment and reopened (albeit with some work left to do) in July 2007.
The former "rustic plastering" and ancient carpet has been replaced by a much more modern and up-market decor of light wood flooring, half panelled walls and comfy chairs as opposed to the ancient velour bench seating it had before.
The pool table is still there but has been moved to the back of the pub to a space made by moving the lavatories and opening the door to the back yard.
Despite the style of the refurbishment it still retains the character of a local pub to a large extent.
