Description:
The Smith's Tavern can be found right in the centre of the beautiful town of Ashbourne.

We stopped here on the return from the Download Festival at Castle Donington, with two items on our agenda, namely: Having something to eat, and having a dump.

We liked the pub, it is laid out in several chambers, with period decor.

The staff were very friendly, and took our food order at our tables.

We had full roasts, it was top notch scran!

Soon after, it was time to visit the loos, for those of us that hadn't already, and indeed it was time for a poo.

The gents toilets were pretty bang-on. Look up as you enter the room and you'll see a domed-type window above you, allowing excellent lighting!

The room itself was white / plainly painted.

There is one metal urinal, nothing special, but cleanly presented.

Look up at the roof again, and you'll see the nicely shaped urinal cistern!

Opposite you can find the Sink, Mirror, Hand Dryer, and Soap. All worked well.

On the far wall is an entrance to the toilet cubicle, along with a condom machine.

The toilet cubicle itself houses a plain white porcelain bowl, with white seat. The cistern is on show, and has a silver flush handle.

There was a large roll holder, extra roll on the cistern, and a bog brush... Just as well really, 8 of us had stopped here for a drop-off!

There is also some piping on show, which is always nice.

Update - End of August 2008...

Paul the Landlord at The Smiths Tavern has been in touch...

Our photos are a little dated, and the pub has had a complete refit, including nice new loos.

He has sent us some updated photos, so lets see what we have here.

First off, we now have photographs for the Ladies Loos.

Any Lady Patrons have the choice of two fine toilet cubicles. White toilet bowls are housed in cream coloured cubicles, with red doors, and big roll holders.

The toilet room floor is of medium-sized dark brown tiling.

Out in the main chamber, there is pink coloured walling, up to a central divide, above which the walls are cream.

There is a nice sink, with two taps, pink hand wash, and a nice little shelf feature with an air freshener on it.

To the gents...

The fella's bogs have had a complete overhaul, and now have black tiling upto the central divide.

Gone is the trough, and in are 3 nice looking white urinals, attractively plumbed onto the new tiles.

The original sink is now plumbed against the new tiling too, and you'll find an array of handwash options.

Thanks to Paul for the updated photos, he has also supplied a new photo of the roof dome / window, the character of which hasn't been spoilt by the refit.

Splendid - 8/10
