A 70s wood brick flooring in this big pub with a recessed entrance.
It has one room 'L' shaped with steps to the back area. Entrance area has space to the right with the bar ahead and a real fire in the corner. There is bench seating around the walls with wooden tables and stools. To the left is another recessed area which has no fire but a fruit machine and is smaller. There are large jazz pictures on the walls and jazz on CD. There is also a TV. If you are lucky you might see the pub cat, but don't bank on it.
The back room has a low ceiling covered in music and its where the jazz in played. Wood panels predominate. Bar is wood with stained glass overhang. Beers on at the time were Abbey Ales Bellringer, Wadworths 6X and Butcombe Bitter.
Almost like an estate pub, hence the name. Stained glass lights are everywhere and there is a bell on ceiling close to the bar corner to calling time. Next door is the Abbey Ales brewshop/outlet.
