About the Pub

As the name suggests, this is a rock 'n' ale bar with an impressive jukebox offering 50,000+ rock songs and which plays host to live bands on Saturdays. Some of the artefacts adorning the bar and framed pictures of parties near the entrance will be familiar to former customers of the legendary Hornblower, a similar kind of venue, the spirit of which lives on here. The familiar Jack Daniels promotional memorabilia adds to the decoration. Opposite the bar, mounted above a mirror, is a TV delivering music and sports channels, while on the wall near the door is What's On @McCanns displaying the next 3 months entertainment. A large blackboard beyond the bar colourfully lists drinks prices. While most people gather around the bar, the rear section has cosy seating arranged around sufficient floor space to host musicians. In fine weather, there is an attractive downstairs courtyard and smoking area at the rear, while at the front is some pavement seating that is also popular for "ale" fresco drinking. A few local bus services drop off outside.
