Standard InnThe Mint
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Reopened in November 2014 by the present owner, the interior has been stripped back to the beautifully carved beams and brickwork of the original building. Dating from the fifteenth century, this well stablished inn is well positioned in a narrow street that meanders from the town centre to the riverside area. It has a front bar partitioned by a rustic wooden screen and a separate back room, the former with quarry tiles, the latter a wooden floor. A rear courtyard is a suntrap in summer months. The menu includes pub standards with some interesting variations, locally sourced where possible. Four cask ales are on offer including house beer ‘Standard Farmer Ale’, a beer from Old Dairy Brewery unique to this pub, the others are from Three Legs which is also local. Local CAMRA Branch Pub of the Year in 2018, the award is shown in the presentation picture above.
