My friends and I affectionately call this our local, because while it isn’t around the corner from us, it’s certainly one of the nicest pubs in our area. Inside, a collection of wooden tables and and cushioned chairs are lit by mismatched chandeliers. Palm trees covered in fairy lights and massive mirrors in elaborate frames add to the red burgundy decor.
Traditional tasty pub food is served at reasonable prices and a carnival-like old-fashioned popcorn machine provides a steady flow of free popcorn, placed strategically around the circular bar in large bowls.
My favourite part is the beer garden at the back. Half the space is covered and there is plenty of seating. The covered area has three sets of large semi-circular tables with booth-like seating. Sitting outside in winter is also an option as there is a very efficient heating lamp system.
