The large interior has been opened out, but retains the vestiges of separating walls. There are still a number of definite areas, each with its own ambience, including a side room with a pool table and dartboard. A central bar curves around to provide service from several sides.
A piano stands in one corner, and the darker, cosier area towards the back is also home to a couple of fruit/quiz machines. Large windows in most areas provide plenty of natural light. Flooring is a mix of bare boards and flagstones, and paintwork and wallpaper are mainly in shades of grey.
Kake visited on a Tuesday lunchtime in September 2019. There were four or five other customers when I arrived a little before 12:30pm. Music was playing, not too loud. Sky Sports News was showing silently on a flatscreen. Service was very polite.
The handpumps were clipped for four Greene King ales: IPA, Abbot Ale, Yardbird, and Old Golden Hen. A pint of lime and soda was 78p.
According to a notice seen in September 2019, there's a quiz every Sunday from 7:30pm.
According to the Greene King website as of September 2019, food is served noon-10pm every day.
