What CAMRA say about this pub

When it opened in the late 1990s this was a Hogshead with a wide range of real ales but since falling into the hands of Greene King its beer range has become pedestrian. The name commemorates the former Avery's scales-making factory which occupied the premises; some features like the cast-iron columns downstairs and the ducting and high roof upstairs remain. The downstairs bar has a pleasant mish-mash of furnishings while upstairs is brighter and tends to be louder, especially in the evening. There are great views over Parkers Piece when the trees aren't in leaf. Bar counters at both levels. Food served 12 - 10 from the standard GK managed house menu. The sports TV can be noisily obtrusive.
