Doric ArchBah, despite going to the old Head of Steam (see publog, passim), the night after it re-opened, we have still be beaten to the first write-up by fancyapint. As Jack says, it’s a very benign make over, but i think it works well. They’ve taken four or five tables out which means you are no longer fighting to get out of the raised carpeted bit and they’ve still got quite a lot of non-fullers ale on (Darkstar Hophead, Batemans Dark Mild and Cottage Champflower all on on opening). We thought they had cut down quite a lot on the railway tat, but judging by some pics on flickr they have put most of it back since we went, including the CARMYLE sign!!!
