About the Pub

Large city-centre pub serving traditional real ales and food, all at reasonable prices. Tasting notes are provided for the ever-changing guest beers.

The ground floor bar has a tree-shaded terrace outside with plenty of seating and views along Castle Meadow and Orford Place.

The upstairs bars are on two levels, the lower of which, due to the slope of Timberhill is still at ground level. The main bar is wood-floored, and behind the long servery is a maze of different sized rooms, looking out over Orford Place and Castle Meadow, with plenty of seating, carpets, pale wood and brass fittings.
