See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Originally a cinema, The Picture Palace, built in 1912, and replaced by The Embassy in 1930, this spacious pub retains the character of a picture house. The floor slopes down to the long curved bar at the front where the stage used to be, with a very large TV screen above it, and some eye-catching Art Deco installations. Additional TVs give a choice of channels. Trading as a Lloyds No. 1 bar. Close to the bus and train stations. Guide dogs are welcome. In current CME Recommended Pub Guide.
