Description
They keep 'em busy all day at this roomy city-centre pub built as the name suggests, on the site of an auctioneers (and before that, a church). From the regulars calling in for breakfast to the upbeat weekend revellers dancing till late, this is a bar that offers something for everyone. Whether you're enjoying your Belhaven Extra Cold over a meal, joining your mates to watch LIVE SPORT on one of the 12 television screens or meeting a fellow shopper for an afternoon coffee, The Auctioneers will make you feel at home
