Percy Lambert, Weybridge

Description: This large venue has high ceilings and mood lighting, with a chandelier over the bar and some oversize burgundy shades. Most of the walls are plastered and there's also some bare brickwork. They are decorated with stretched canvas works of art, and old motor racing photos. Which is not surprising as the venue is named after a racing driver. The first man to drive at 100mph in 1913. He was tragically killed, just 8 months later, and his ghost is said to haunt the nearby Brooklands track. The flooring is the trendy option of bare wooden boards. The seating is a mixture of high tables and stools and some normal size ones, and a couple of padded benches. The four sided island bar is in the middle of the room, with the spirit bottles arranged on tiered shelves. There are no optics, but with those curved metal tubed caps. Beers on offer include Carling, Fosters, Heineken, Hoegaarden, Peroni, Stella, John Smiths Smooth, Guinness and Strongbow Cider. Also real ales Greene King IPA / Old Speckled Hen, Fullers London Pride. There is a pool room at the back, and a few fruit and quiz machines. The small raised stage for live music, though your view is often interupted by the steady flow of drinkers to the toilets and back again. Being situated in a high street, it has almost no windows, though the front has glass doors which look like they can be rolled back in summer. It has recently re-opened following a major refurbishment in Sept 2006. It is for over 21s only.
