The pub comprises a single large room with a low ceiling, broken up into smaller areas with wood panels and railings. A long bar with two banks of six handpumps each stands opposite the entrance, and there are a few booths along the side walls, backed by shelves of hardback books.
Kake and friends visited on a Thursday evening in March 2009. The place was fairly full, but there were a few free tables. Most of the handpumps were on, though some were duplicates and others had "coming soon" signs on. Ales that were actually available included Ruddles (selling for only 99p), Everards Tiger (£1.99/pint), Rebellion Mutiny (with a handwritten cardboard pump clip), and another one with a rugby-themed name.
A TV was showing the Simpsons, but I couldn't tell whether the sound was on since it was over the other side of the room and there was quite a lot of conversational noise. No music.
There is a small outdoors area of fenced-off seating along the street, with a couple of tables under awnings.
Accessibility: Level access to the bar and most of the seating area, and there's a dedicated accessible toilet.
