The pub is very nice in itself. Historic and nicely decorated although if they are no longer using the gaslights, they should clean up the ceilings a bit. Shame they aren't using them anymore :/ We arrived on a Friday at 5pm. We were informed...More

Obviously an extremely interesting place and a must see. The pub itself is nice, sitting outside Guy/Guido's house and drinking a pint of his beer is very bizarre. The woman (of foreign extraction) behind the bar was lovely and friendly.
