There's no food, but comfortable seating and great beer. Real ales as well as Belgian and others. The fact that you'll find beer menus on the tables says a lot. We tended to go there for pre-dinner drinks (see The Wig & Mitre for food)...More

Main reason for our visit was to find a nice cold beer. And the choice here is huge. Great selection of Belgian beers as well as the usual options on the bar. Nice comfortable surroundings and knowledgeable staff

We called in to this pub on a Thursday evening on the way back from dinner. There was a great atmosphere and an excellent range of Belgian beers. Much to my partner's delight they also had Zot beer on draft. We had an excellent evening.
