This pub is indescribable; externally and especially internally. It is just bizarre - architecturally and in terms of fittings and furniture. It has all these nooks and crannies, little rooms and hidden holes. It has coins and notes forced into crevices in various bits of furniture and the bar (made from wood recovered from a bog). It has a massive set of bellows with legs converted into a table. It has skulls, stuffed animals, lamps, tools and all sorts of ornaments. And lots more. Indescribable - it has to be seen to be believed!
We had a drink in the bar (a pint for me and a Pimm's and lemonade for the Mrs). I took some photos and dropped some coins in the plate for the privilege. We had a chat to Bruce behind the bar and to the couple of couples that came in. One couple were staying in the pub for a few nights and had stayed before, so obviously enjoyed it, They spoke highly of the breakfasts. Frankly, we had intended to come in just for one drink, and found that we were enjoying ourselves so much that we had a second drink.
I'm looking forward to a return visit.
