This is a great bar with a cool and welcoming dimly lit vibe. Really varied selection of keg and cask beers too. Friendly service and just a great place to hang with a few pints and a good book! Shall be back.

A good selection of real ales, all kept well. A quirky place with a good mix of people. Locals, students, young & old. This place has a great atmosphere - a fantastic pub.
