First time in, was drawn in by the rumours around town of a fantastic pub under Etruria. It's lived up to its reputation after just a few sips :)

It's my local pub I go there every now and then with coleagues. Service is quick and prices are avarage. Last drinks served at 23:30 but the staff will always let you finish them before closing the pub.

My friends have been regulars here for a while now and I can see why. The selection of beers is fantastic as is the atmosphere. A great place to sip a good pint inside or out.

Called in after shopping for a look at this old pub, and was delighted by the choice of beer on offer, and the ambience, highly recommended for fans of proper drinks, a place to talk.
