About the Pub

Once described on its website as a 'youth club for grown ups' this is a cafe bar housed in a former antiques emporium upstairs from a vintage shop and next door to a vinyl record shop. It provides real ale, craft keg, pizza, music, and art all in one package. Simply furnished with wooden tables and chairs, and some bench seating. The décor is in a mix of styles to suit its eclectic customers, including some art work of pictures and pottery for sale. The four handpumps dispense a changing variety of ales, usually from a range of smaller breweries often including the local Rooster’s brewery, and Turning Point from Knaresborough. There are also interesting keg beers, and bottles and cans from the UK, US and Europe; the bottle shop offers a 30% discount.
