About the Pub

Small former Charrington's pub owned by the local Meantime Brewery (since 2015 itself owned by brewing giant SABMiller then in 2016 by Asahi Group) with a large selection of its beers and an extensive range of bottled beers. Popular with students. Single narrow bar with rustic tiled floor and wooden tables and chairs. Originally had 3 handpumps but these were removed in early 2014 leaving the pub selling keg beers only on draught.
