Following a significant refurbishment it reopened in March 2015 as the Grain Store, renamed four months later as the Grain & Hop Store. There are great views over Parkers Piece when the trees aren't in leaf. Bar counters at both levels. When it opened as a pub in the late 1990s this was a Hogshead with a wide range of real ales but after falling into the hands of Greene King its beer range became, for a while, less interesting. For some time it was known as the Avery, commemorating the former Avery scales factory which occupied the premises; some features like the cast-iron columns downstairs and the ducting and high roof upstairs remain. Following a refurb in 2021 the Grain & Hop Store got rid of their Tankovna system for unpasteurized Pilsner Urquell from Plzen and also no longer served cask ales concentrating instead on keg beers, wines, spirits etc.
