Went on a Friday night after 9pm. Never been and didn't know what to expect. The beer was Samuel smiths and was really cheap. Two pints for just over £4. Nice old British pub.

Cheap drinks, plenum of beer and lager choice and great to sit outside during the evening and in the sun. Refreshing to find a proper pub in the city centre that doesn't cost a fortune and also isn't rough. Would visit again.

Just got asked to leave for having a "big bag" although there were loads of people with bags. When I asked why, they said I may blow the place up. Unbelievable!!!

HI Thinks children are allowed at certain times. It is a very beautiful pub but it must be said it is very small and can get busy. For this reason I would not want to take my child unless you were seated in the very large... More
