About the Pub

Aug 2022 - Reopened under new ownership in October 2021. Real ale remains regularly available but food is no longer served. Apart from redecoration little has changed.

A cosy, characterful bar hidden halfway down an Old Town close, decorated with railway memorabilia. The small, often busy, bar area at the front has window seats, stools and tables. The rear area has more comfortable semi-circular booth seating where children over five may be allowed until 8pm if the pub is quiet. The bar may stay open until 1am during busy times of year.
