About the Pub

Closed 15/12/18, future uncertain. Opened as Sofa, then taken over by the Font chain. For many a year a keg-only bar, yet in Jan 2013 in began selling cask ale. The two handpumps would see a varied range of breweries, but would often feature the likes of RedWillow, Hawkshead, and Magic Rock. That changed in late 2018, when the cask ales and real cider were dropped from sale. Seemingly a small street-corner bar, however once inside it is far larger than it appears. For a start it is on two levels, complete with a balcony for those balmy people-watching days. The downstairs area extends deeply towards the back, with the bar being set to the right, whilst the rest of the pub lies to the left on a slightly lower level. It caters to a good mix of people. Modern decor adorns the walls. Food served from noon till 9pm.
