About the Pub

A handsome riverside pub with a central bar serving the main bar and separate quiet back bar. The pub is situated opposite Trent Barton's bus garage about 10 minutes walk from the bus station. The Railway Station is also 10 minutes walk across Bass's Recreation Ground. There is a car park to the side of the pub. On a fine day the large outside terrace overlooking the river is very pleasant.

The beer range is very varied with a strong emphasis on new breweries. There is also a good selection of craft keg beer.
