About the Pub

This bar opened in November 2014 after the complete refurbishment of a once-popular Italian restaurant situated behind the Victoria Theatre. Eight rotating real ales are currently available from microbreweries. There are also numerous world bottled beers and 18 keg lines. On entering you find the main seating and drinking area with wooden floors and a tiled bar. To the left is a more secluded area and steps to an upper level which offers several seating areas. Food is not currently available, which they hope to provide in the near future.
