It was built in the 1970s on the site of an older pub with the same name, and looks pretty much as you might expect for something of that era. A patterned carpet covers the floor, and some of the seating is up on a dais protected by shiny brass rails. A central domed glass lighting feature in front of the bar photo provides some interest. There's also a pool table, and a fair bit of outside seating including a small play area for children.
Although they have three handpumps for real ale, they were all clipped for Abbot Ale. Unfortunately, Kake's half of this was sour; the staff member behind the bar took it back immediately and provided Strongbow instead, but didn't turn the clip around as he should have.
According to a sign seen outside in May 2011, food is served noon-2:30pm and 5:30pm-8:30pm Mon-Fri; noon-8:30pm Sat; and noon-3:30pm Sun.
Accessibility: A ramp to get in, and level access to the bar, toilets, and much of the seating once you're in. There are a few disabled parking spaces outside.
