Tel: 01633 483218
Large roadside pub and former Ansells Brewery house with connections to the Chartist march of 1839, it once served a scattered rural community before finding itself surrounded by the houses of the new town. An extensive refurbishment in late 2014 has not only presented a smart fresh interior to its clientele but has also announced its return to the real ale fold with two handpulls installed to deliver a guest ale or two. The pleasant decor of the public bar, which has a large TV screen, and larger lounger bar is similar in style and comfort. The two rooms are now linked. Many original features have been retained which add to the character including a tiled fireplace above which is a large ornate clock. Cockerel figures are placed around the lounge and there is a striking image of a cockerel fight and the pub name in glass behind the bar. The food offering gives a good choice of popular starters and mains, mostly home-cooked, with light bites (until 3pm) plus a childrens' menu. Sunday lunch is a traditional roast while a curry special deal is on Tuesday. Monday is quiz night (7.30pm).
