Originally opened in 1636, the pub used to be a coaching inn called The Old Lamb Inn or The Lamb Inn, it was changed by Whitbread to Drake’s Crab & Oyster Bar in the 80’s and is now just known as Drakes.
With a mixture of real ales and specialist spirits on sale, Drakes also hosts regular live music nights, open mic and DJ events, focusing on more alternative styles of music: indie and alternative rock, hip-hop and reggae. There are also occasional comedy, poetry and quiz nights. The pub has a large courtyard garden, which is very popular on summer evenings
