About the Pub

Tweeted 11 June as now selling real ale. However on a visit in Sept 2015 the cask beer had disappeared but in May 2016 it had returned, they do have two engines, one pump currently has Dark Star Hophead with hopes to have a second beer on at some point.

Historic Interest

Local listing:- Late 19th century former bank (now a bar) at apex of junction of Fortess Road and Brecknock road. Red brick with contrasting stuccoed detailing including fluted pilasters, and window architraves. Canted corner facing the junction has pediment over first floor window; Last bay on Brecknock road (225) was formerly a carriage entrance at ground floor to a small yard at the rear, evidenced by the granite setted vehicle crossover. The block has been well maintained at upper levels particularly, and the roof scape remains intact with small dormers over each bay; some signage and shopfronts at street level are less sympathetic to the block’s character. Fine Victorian architecture, important landmark contribution to townscape.
