See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Grace Land, operator of the Earl of Essex acquired what was Jan’s Bar to take its portfolio to five sites. It was acquired from a private vendor, via landlord Wellington Pub Company, for an undisclosed sum. Reopened as Axe in May 2017 with a central bar, an impressive beer list of 3 on cask regularly changing (website has up to date details), 19 on keg and lots of bottles - a very impressive list. No clips but paper details slotted into board on the wall. A welcome change and return although the pub has no signage!
The kitchen is serving food from 3pm Monday to Thursday, from noon on Friday and Saturday, and roast on Sunday from noon till late afternoon (or until it’s sold out).
On a visit in May 2022 real cider was on offer.
