About the Pub

A small, friendly Goth bar close to town centre with sawdust on the floor and quirky artefacts. Formerly a photographic studio. It's owned and operated by St Jude’s Brewery. There are up to 20 changing beers and 4 ciders served from a gravity stillage behind the servery. The pub also offers some imported lagers and a selection of bar snacks.

There's a function room upstairs and occasional acoustic music sessions, plus TV for sports events. Regular quiz nights take place on Sunday evenings. There's a small outdoor area to the rear of the bar. Occasional themed parties include fancy-dress Halloween and pirate nights.
