Beautiful home made soup with crispy croutons and roll. Partner had pie, mash and veg. Both very nice meals with good service. Feels a completely different environment than that of a Friday night.

This traditional pub is but a few minutes walk from the cathedral. The menu is quite extensive with a variety of 'specials' on offer, many of which are homemade. The cask-conditioned beers available are very well kept, and the conservatory which adjoins the bar, whilst...More
