Came in for a complementary glass of prosecco after doing the City bus tour (The red bus tour). Decent ales and worth a look.

Called in for a drink. Although I didn’t eat, (I had just eaten elsewhere), the food looked excellent and reasonably priced. The pub is worth going into if only for a look round. The front door and the interior decor are out of this world.
