About the Pub

Tiny, two-room house that echoes times-past in its layout. A small quadrant bar manages to serve two cask beers, whilst friendly waiting staff guide you to a seat (space is at such a premium, that the table service really is a godsend here) in either the front room or back room (with TV). The back room's particular focus is on football material, meanwhile the focus in the front room is local history and entertainers associated with the city. Always popular with tourists, the Circus is a magnet for visitors to the town. NB. closing times may vary depending on the season and the number of customers in at the time.
