About the Pub

Large red brick terrace pub immediately across the historic Old Dee Bridge. Heavily altered, modernised and slightly extended it is now a glass–fronted, well-lit one-room bar with some exposed brick, wood and slate floors. Subtly partitioned, it is pleasantly and simply furnished throughout including a cosy series of tables and chairs around a large fire. Decor consists of unusual nautical themed lighting, bric-a-brac (including a large abacus) of varying quirkiness and, most noticeably in the stairwell, framed prints of local historic relevance. The similarly furnished upstairs restaurant includes a glazed area overlooking Edgar's Field public park.
