Great bar, good atmosphere, brilliant music. Staff tip top. Vast range of beers to suit all tastes. Pretty decent place to spend some time. Give it a whirl!

Popped in for a bite to eat on a Sunday evening, chose a selection of antipasti that came with specially selected beer samples.
The portions were very generous with lots of flavour, great music and friendly staff.
Super value for money with an amazing selection of world beers.
Definitely return if in the area again.

Not immediately obvious that there is a quirky little pub at the end of the yard, but it is well worth searching out. Good food, large selection of drinks, friendly staff and any dog is allowed to take their well behaved owners in with them. Also noticed that the staff turned the music down once the bar started to fill up. Would visit again if I was in the area.

I returned here to meet someone after not having been for a year and was as impressed as I was last time. It is a 'tucked away' off the main road traditional pub of the region with extremely helpful and pleasant staff and a great all-round atmosphere. I was here for drinks this time - a great selection on the bar - but have eaten in the past and it was good and reasonably priced. This is a very popular pub with local people and students which is always a good sign.
