Sunday afternoon - thought I’d check out the refurb. Not busy and so quite pleasant - I got served straight away! Layout has not changed but the two dominant TVs have been replaced by just in a more discrete location. It seems lighter and more relaxed than before. Rather disappointing beer selection - just 6, and 3 of those standard spoons fare.
