The Junction on Leeman Road has reopened as the Junction Brewhouse. What a transformation: the pub is completely unrecognisable from previous incarnations. Pool tables and fruit machines are no more and the pub is comfortable, welcoming and imaginatively laid out. There’s a big back room which is neither cavernous nor regimented, thanks to the clever use of varied furniture and a raised area in one corner.

The smaller bar at the front is lighter, with a wooden floor and bench seating; throughout there are interesting beer and brewery-related pictures on the walls. The beer range is extensive and interesting: Copper Dragon Golden Pippin, Rooster’s Yankee and Fuller’s London Pride were just three of seven we had the choice of. The planned on-site brewery may well be open by the time you read this, with the first beer likely to be called Trainspotter. (map)
