This pub dates from 1925 and was built for Brickwood's Brewery. Its striking half-timbered style with ornate glazed brickwork and mosaic tiling makes it one of the most recognisable buildings on Kingston Road

The interior of the pub has now been knocked into one large, roughly L-shaped, bar room, smartly decorated and divided into three distinct areas. The room in which the bar counter is located has a varnished floor and is furnished mostly with high tables and stools. There is a dart board and games machine to be found here. To the right of the bar counter can be found a comfortable, carpeted lounge, with an original fireplace containing a wood burner. A large mirror hangs on the chimney breast and a flat-panel television is mounted directly above. A large number of small, framed modern art prints adorn the walls, together with a series of larger, black and white photographic artworks. A second dart board is located in the lounge. To the rear of the pub is a games area containing two pool tables. This leads to a secluded west-facing patio garden. Occasional live music is hosted, including open mic sessions on every second Sunday. Sunday roasts served noon-4pm (other meals subject to availability).
