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

This relaxed backstreet pub is decorated with brewery memorabilia, quirky bric-a-brac and photos of regulars. The flags and crests on the ceiling are of Belgian towns and regions. A small bar on entry with a narrow seating area extending from front to back. Tables outside. Seven hand pumps dispense five changing ales Charles Wells/Marston's, the remainder being used for guest ales from small breweries nationwide. A real cider or perry is also served. To complement these there is a printed menu of about 100 bottled Belgian beers, with occasional beer tastings - the landlord has written a small but informative book on Belgian Trappist Beer, if expert advice is needed. Regular live music. COVID-19. Due to the pub's small size the licensees of the Elm Tree have decided to delay reopening.
