We go here each month for our Steampunk meetings. Very friendly with comfortable and decidedly quirky décor a la Monty Python, complete with dead (cuddly toy) parrot in cage. Good range of liquid refreshments and a beer garden for those hotter days!

A very wise ranging choice of beers, ciders and lagers from around the world in bottles as well as a large choice of draught. A good music venue at the weekend.
