Image Detail & Specifications

The date of this photograph is July 26th 1951 but it could be the 1920's such is its timeless appeal. It certainly looks as if licensee Florence Paice kept a tidy establishment. Part of the outdoor's appeal is its understatement. Unlike retailing of the 21st century, there is no flashy advertising or gimmickry - however, the stark asceticism of the offie probably conveyed a subliminal message that this was the place to obtain simple well-kept ale. Locals would be served via handpull and jug and they could nip home to enjoy a beer with their dinner or whilst listening to the light programme. Note the wonderful etched glass windows and the cellar trap between the doors.
