About the Pub

Situated immediately adjacent to the bus interchange in the historic Old Market area, this Grade II listed pub reopened July 2017 after a full internal and garden refurbishment. The classic green-tiled frontage of this Victorian pub (dating back to 1872) gives way to a one long bar room that now has a contemporary style and a relaxed feel with a view into the kitchen at the back of the pub. There is a spacious and quiet patio at the rear. Guest beers are often from local breweries, but can include some from breweries farther afield.
