About the Pub

This 15th-century public house can be found by the medieval Barbican and old toll bridge.

Its low ceilings, wooden beams and brick walls create an old world feel, providing a congenial ambience for locals and tourists alike. Relax by the windows and watch the world go by, or sit in the back courtyard overlooking the river - not to be missed on a summer’s day. There's also a cosy, carpeted, snug, if you want to get away from the crowds.

Three or four real ales feature including a house beer from the Mad Cat Brewery. Real cider is from Westons, Thatchers and Friels.

There is a good range of home-made food which usually features Caribbean specialities, for example goat curry. Bar snacks include home-made sausage rolls.

Regular live music events are held.

The pub is a short walk from local transport and public car parking.
