It's quite small, consisting of a single room wrapped around the bar. There are only three tables, plus stools at the bar and at sills around the walls. There's a fruit machine, and despite the small size of the place there are three flatscreens, placed so you can see at least one of them wherever you're sitting. Decor is plain and traditional, and the windows are fully frosted. In good weather, there are also a few tables and chairs outside on the pavement.
There are no handpumps for real ale, but they do have Guinness and Tetleys Smoothflow, as well as things like Strongbow, Becks, and Kronenbourg. A pint of lime and soda was 80p in July 2013.
On Kake's Monday lunchtime visit in July 2013, there were a few other customers; one small group having lunch, and another person in just for a drink. Service was friendly.
As of July 2013, food is served 11am-3pm Monday-Friday only.
Accessibility: No steps to get in, and it's stepfree to the bar, all the seating, and the ladies' and the accessible toilet (not checked the gents'). Some of the seating is on high stools.
