Micro pub which is what it says it is. Very friendly, good range of real ales and some spirits. The cheese and onion cobs are slabs of gorgeousness! It gets busy but it's small so it will. Plus you can talk.. No damn sports TV,...More

A small, clean and friendly micropub with a good selection of real ales and craft beers. It seems popular with locals and tourists, and the quality of beer was top notch.

Real Ale bar, a "Tardis" of a place. Small just adequate..but it grows with Character when its smallness means one soon becomes part of the conversation. Food is limited to a few snacky items, but the beatiful real ale choices feed the soul. Drop in...Whippet...More

This place never disappoints and the beers are always on point. Without doubt the best ales in the city with a friendly clientele. If you like hoppy ales this is where you need to be. Beware though it closes at 10pm prompt and doesn’t open...More
