Sunday lunch - Roast beef with all the trimmings for a fiver. Excellent value for money. Good service and pleasant staff. Great range of real ales. Well worth a visit.

Good ales on tap, some of which were on the pricey side but worth it! Relaxed atmosphere with a mix of students and older groups. Music at a good level, which is rare on a Saturday in most pubs. Will return asap.
