Onslow InnPensfold, Bicton Heath
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The Onslow was built in 1988 for Whitbread to serve the then new Gains Park estate. But it has since passed into private ownership. It's a large pub, very much a local, and which has now been divided into two separate businesses. A prospective customer should, therefore, be on high alert on approaching the entrance foyer. Taking the left hand door is key, as this will lead to the pub itself. The right hand door, however, takes one into the Balti restaurant, which used to be the (rather large) lounge. Through the left hand door one will find a large room, serving as bar, lounge and pool area. The whole thing is comfortable, being carpeted throughout, and with ample soft seating available to watch the 96" TV screen! In addition, there's a south facing conservatory giving access to the patio at the front. Came under the same management as the restaurant next door in October 2016, but this has not resulted in any change other than a wider range of Sports TV (though opening hours have now been reduced - Oct 2017) Two changing beers. Oracle is a regular, on a recent visit the two beers were from Harvistoun and Boss.
