My perfect bar. Small, hip, welcoming, perfectly formed. Relax and enjoy. Beards welcome. It's a small bar on a quiet street. Mixed clientele. Many (the men) with beards. Good IPAs, good gins. Dog friendly. Great manager(ess). Good tunes.

Delicious thali, unique cocktails, friendly staff, wonderful ambience. Didn’t expect it in a little tucked away old pub! This place is a gem. Would definitely go back for drinks with friends or a nice meal out for two.

This pub has the best veggie Thali, lovely chef and a great atmosphere. It's a brilliant find close to, but tucked away from, the main drag

Went for a drink but ended up tasting the new menu here at one of our favourite pubs. Vegetarian/vegan Indian food. Had a Starter and Thali which were fantastic. Highly recommended.

It's tucked away behind The Old Market, so perfect should you want a pre or post theatre drink or supper. They have a good selection of wines, are dog friendly and have seating outside which is a boon at this time of year. It's a...More

I’m a little biased on this one because it’s my local (geographically at least),so I’ve been in a few times. That said, if it wasn’t good, I wouldn’t keep going bak, however close it was, so it gets my thumbs up. In essence, the pleasure...More
