About the Pub

Marvellous mid-nineteenth century, Grade II listed, four-storey wedge-shaped building recently very impressively revived by the Head of Steam Group. It now consists of revamped public bar, two function rooms; regular live music venues, and rooftop terrace. However the main attraction is the quite magnificently restored Buffet (closed when quiet, ask to view), designated by CAMRA as a pub interior of Special Historic Interest. It is as fitted-out circa 1900 with its great carved U-shaped counter and bar back, plasterwork frieze and panelling etc. There is also a triangular snug with dart board. The 14 handpulls dispense many local microbrewery beers. Regular quiz nights held.
