Thief revived

Last year I posted some pictures of the Davenport Arms (aka the Thief’s Neck) at Woodford and made the comment that, while in most respects it was an excellent pub, it would benefit from removing the foliage at the front and restoring direct access to the road. Well, lo and behold, it has recently undergone a £100,000 refurbishment by Robinson’s Brewery and licensee Yvonne Hallworth, and my wish has been granted. It looks very appealing in today’s bright Spring sunshine.

    Sorry, but rather like those Before and After shots in all those interminable Laurence Llwelyn-Bowen makeover shops I much prefer the original.
    Surely when a pub is next to a road you want a bit of nature between you and the vehciles ?
