Tip top bar similar to the one in Durham. A cosy venue with an array of real ales. We loved it in here. You will find it directly opposite the rail station.

This place is great, upstairs is a nice cosy warm pub with decent selection of drinks and a nice crowd on a late night. Downstairs they put on music and bands and the like, so that's a nice space. Never any trouble here, class location

After curry thought we would drop in for a quick pint. Great ambiance and good range of beers. The menu board "our beers" at the entrance is a good touch. Enjoyed our brief visit here.
