The King’s Head (The Low House) is one of the very few pubs left in Britain that has no bar-counter. You go in the tap room at the back. Beer drinkers survey the array of barrels and request whatever takes their fancy, drawn straight from the barrel, while others can order whatever they usually have. Before you reach the barrels, you pass through a room dominated by an ancient fireplace. Old settles, polished in parts by the backs and bottoms of the long deceasead, surround it in a U-shape, with a table in the middle. Another room, also called the tap room, likewise has one large table and bench seats around it. This is a social pub. They have no juke box or television, and pride them selves on still having a sense of tradition, and a slight window into the past. What a pub and the Beer is amber nectar. Cheers every one, Iain.

This sounds like a wonderful pub! I'd love to visit this place and buy you a pint of ale there. No telly or jukebox - that sounds right up my street.
A wonderfully clear and sharp picture with lovely colours, a gorgeous sky and perfect exposure. I'd love to see some pictures from inside this place - did you take any?
P.S. Here you go - have a look at this map, drag the little man down to the red cross and pan around!
