Burton upon Trent
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
This former pub, and subsequently a struggling night club for many years, has recently been acquired and radically refurbished by Amber Taverns. It re-opened as a pub on 9th June 2016. Its new name is an oblique reference to Michael Arthur Bass, the first Lord Burton and great grandson of William Bass, founder of the Bass Brewery.
Internally, the well-furnished long, narrow single room stretches back from the entrance, with access to the beer garden at the far end. Much use is made of wood and wood panelling, including the bar counters down one side. In addition to standard tables and chairs, there are a number of 4-seater 'booths' and a few high tables and chairs. An unusual feature is a large old map of central Burton, with transport pictures, on a wall near the entrance. Some drink-related aphorisms can also be seen, together with Bass Brewery memorabilia.
TV sport is a speciality: there are no fewer than 11 wall-mounted TVs (plus another 2 in the beer garden!).
No pub car park, but there are public car parks nearby.
