The Hand and Flower

I try not to be influenced by other peoples reviews when looking for the next pub to visit, but this one was looking extremely ominous. From the comments on beerintheevening I was expecting to get captured by a family of Chavs, thrown in he back of a van, and driven around for three weeks until the news had got bored of the story and then dumped me under a bridge somewhere.
Disappointingly, it turned out to be nothing of the sort. Friendly staff, good service and cosy surroundings.  I'm impressed at the way they've kept the traditional pub at the front, keeping the restaurant separate towards the back.  It appears to be doing quite good trade with the locals, being the only table free had us sitting on a kid sized choir bench.  Bah.
