A new build JD Wetherspoon's pub, built to replace former building company offices. Despite the quite narrow street frontage, this open plan pub has a long lounge bar with a lot of seating and eventually leads to an outdoor area (mainly used by smokers). It's usually quite busy, especially at weekends.

The name recalls the growing of osiers (long flexible willow twigs) in various places locally, which were then once used for basket making.
