The Plasterers Arms
NOW CLOSED AND DEMOLISHED.
There are lots of interesting items stuck to the ceiling and walls.
Good clean atmosphere with friendly staff, and customers.
The main bar covers most of the pub but there are two side areas which are quieter. Furniture and seating was very good and there was plenty of room for prams etc if necessary.
The toilets (I only saw the male toilets for obvious reasons) are clean and easy to find - which is never a bad thing.
The pub never got over busy and there was a very personal feel to the place.
No negative comments on the beer front.
Food becomes available after mid-day. There is a huge main menu with a wide range of foods to choose from, from curry to toasties to steak, as well as a generous specials board. On Wednesday (after 6.30pm) they have a 'steak night' where special 16oz rump and T-bone are on offer, and their Sunday roasts are gorgeous. Portions are more than generous and the prices are surprisingly reasonable. However, on Wednesday and Sunday it can get quite busy (due to steak night etc).
Staff are friendly and helpful - they will gladly recommend a meal if you have trouble deciding. Food times are from mid-day to late. Best: To be honest I thought the food was fantastic.
So that has to be my favourite feature of this pub.
No accommodation here. (Midge)
