Not wheelchair accessible as far as I could tell. I loved the atmosphere. But the bar is expensive. Beer sold in schooner measures. Didn't eat here but the food coming out of the kitchen looked nice

Friday night and not too busy. They don't serve pints so it's 2/3rd or 1/3rd. The choice is fantastic. A little pricey but worth a visit for a couple of glasses of great beer. Staff were friendly and helpful on our visit. They have board...More

While our bar is all about beer, we are hugely passionate about anything that make our tastebuds sing. Bread has such a symmetry with beer that we have always found ourselves pairing and tasting the two together. Our menu is based around our own house baked breads that we create fresh each day for you to savour alongside our beers.
