About the Pub

A traditional, compact two room city centre pub which is 190 years old in 2019 with 8 handpumps featuring 7 "rotating" ales, one of which is always a Vegan option and one a mild. Real ciders and sometimes a perry are available from boxes and ten whiskies always available, along with 150 gins. The pub has been a regular entry in the Good Beer Guide for many years. Full menu is served weekday lunchtime only but hot pies always available all day. Small pleasant yard to rear for smokers - head for the ladies and turn right! There's always a friendly welcome which means the pub attracts a lot of regular clients - like a local in the city centre. Particularly busy on Fridays and Saturday evenings. Dogs are welcome on Sundays but not other days when the pub is too busy.
