This pub has excellent vibe with lots of beers on tap and good pub grub. We had halibut which was very good. It’s a little off the main drag (opposite the Bristol Hotel) but worth the walk for something a little different from the usual.

Really nice, traditional bar, evidently very popular with the locals. Vast array of beers available and the staff were more than happy to suggest beers to meet tastes
