Great little pub tucked away in the North Laines. Gets very busy, if you want to eat you might have to wait for a table. Food is very nice. Real Ales and great atmosphere.

Unique atmosphere, locals of all ages, shapes and sizes: great beer. What more could you want? Well try the trip down memory lane looking at all the old tins (from tobacco to cough drops!). Great fun and a nice size.

As well as the superb atmosphere and ales, I'd just like to praise possibly the sandwich I've ever tasted!...I think it was the Reuben (Pastrami, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, mustard, & gherkins on brown)...I've had a few Reubens in my time including all over America &...More
