The Dyers Arms is a wet led pub which trades from a central bar servicing an open plan area. The bar is kept well and the cellar can be accessed from behind the bar. There is a separate space currently used as a pool room with a games machine to the left side of the pub as you walk in, you can also find a jukebox here.
