Popular local pub, named after the celebrated Norton-born sculptor Sir Francis Chantrey. The layout is open plan, but splits the pub into separate drinking areas.
Haven't been for a while. Last time I went they had karaoke with Rosco and he played a lot of mixture music from the 60s to the 80s Motown. It was brilliant, just had a sore head the day after. Loved it. Would definitely be going again.
An odd pub that pulls the older crowd, shall we say. Midweek it's pretty quiet but it gets a little louder on weekends with live music, usually the same terrible 1980s DJ playing the same songs every week without fail.
The beer is not good though. Hand-pulls are usually brackish and old, keg stuff tastes like the lines have not been cleaned in an age. I suppose regulars have built up an immunity to it but beware casual traveller you will feel the wrath in the morning.
