The Paul Pry was the first “proper pub” visited on the recent Beer And Pubs Forum , having met up in the nearby Spoons, The Postal Order.
The pub is wedge shaped and quite imposing upon approach, it also boasts heritage status.
The first thing you notice as you enter the pub is the wonderfully tiled corridor leading to the Ladies and Gents.
It’s a two roomed pub, the room to the left appears more of a function/dining room , the room to the right, front of the wedge is the main drinking area, complete with an ornate Mahogany back bar.
Soon everyone had a pint and found their seats, leaving just the one straggler at the bar,
and leaving the bloggers among us to get down to some serious note taking.
Retired Martin was to Join us later, he was probably still in bed at this point.
To offset some of the impressive woodwork on show, there was a touch of quirkiness.
The Stone Roses Album cover was to denote the current vinyl playing, it was of course something completely different coming through the speakers.
The beer Garden was tiny and compact, but was a pleasant little space.
It was just the second pub of the day and proved to be one of my favourites, a reasonable beer selection, albeit a tad on the tired side, from Salopian, Animal, Paul Pry house beer(Popes?) and Lilly The Pink Cider. A fine establishment.
