See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Popular Wetherspoon's pub in the town centre, created in 2001 from the semi-derelict former Bass-owned Granville Arms. Named after the famous railway engine designer, scion of a local family, who was raised and buried at nearby Netherseal.
The large, open plan, main drinking area, with low ceilings and a green and burnt orange decor, inevitably features many pictures and photographs with a railway theme. Airy conservatory at side used mainly for dining; food served all day; alcoholic drinks available from 9am. Guest beers often from local microbreweries.
Children welcome throughout up to 9pm. Free public car parks nearby.
