The present building dates to the early 17th century and consists of a few small wood panelled rooms that are decorated with hundreds and hundreds of ties from schools, colleges and organisations around the world. the photo shows the small drinking area near the front entrance of the pub. It has enough room for no more than half a dozen people and has its own access to the small bar. You can view more photos and read a review of the pub on Travels with Beer.

Inside the tiny parlour room at the Loggerheads pub in Shrewsbury. This traditional pub still retains a separate lounge and parlour and until 1975, a room near the parlour was only open to men. When I visited, the parlour room certainly had a local feel to it but I didn't feel out of place or unwanted. The shape of the door on the right is not a result of the wide angle lens - it is actually that shape.

The Star Inn is one of the cities oldest pubs and was first licenced as a public house in 1760. The Star retains many original features including the 19th Century bar fittings and the numbered rooms, compulsory when Licensing Laws required all rooms to be numbered and listed for their purpose. The pub is close to the centre of Bath but far enough that it doesn't attract too many tourists.

The Lamb and Flag pub is one of Oxford's oldest pubs. It has been a pub since about 1695, and parts of the original building still remain. It is owned by St John's College and some of the profit the pub makes goes towards scholarships at the college. You can view more photos and read a review of the pub on Travels with Beer.
