Standard smalltown Wetherspoon's fayre. Dark inside and toilets a good half mile away from the bar up a baronial hall style staircase. Outside seating provides a real hidden suntrap. 8 handpumps in 2 banks, each of 4. This Wetherspoon pub bears the name of one of England's greatest astronomers. Pub named after Edmund Halley, who gave his name to a now famous comet, and who lies buried in St Margaret's graveyard. Edmund Halley was born in 1656. His studies in astronomy and mathematics led him to be appointed a Fellow of the Royal Society, at the age of 22.

We have visited this pub 73 times, seen 199 different beers and tried 85 of them.
