About the Pub
This is a recently refurbished 1871 corner pub which still retains its exterior tiling and large stone eagle on the roof, the symbol of Truman's Brewery who used to own the pub. Note the large Truman's lamps still outside.
A large oblong island bar dominates the ground floor, complete with two large wooden eagles. Above the bar are 2 x 500L polished copper tanks dispensing Truman lager through the “tank” method which is, reportedly, “fresher than craft/keg – not pasteurised”. Somewhat oddly, this beer is not gravity-fed but dives down into the cellar to be cooled before being pumped fizzily up again.
There are 2 Truman’s cask ales and 2 guest pumps plus numerous keg fonts. Also available is Cote Breton real cider. The WCs have the trademark Hippo old maps as floor-covering.
The first floor is designed mostly as an eating/function area with a larger room with its own bar and a smaller one with a large flatscreen TV on the wall. Lepidopteraphiles should check out the wallpaper.
The all-day food offering has a Bavarian twist. Dishes include crispy knuckle of pork with fried potato dumplings, and chicken schnitzel with fried duck egg.
The staff wear traditional beer aprons and if you are a regular you may be allowed to keep your own tankard behind the bar. Live music on Friday evenings, quiz night is Tuesday; for other events see pub website.
This pub serves 4 changing beers.
