All you could want in a B.and B. with the bonus of being in a great pub. Comfy clean room. Comfortable bed, good cooked breakfast. The pub is what pubs used to be like before big chains and breweries took over. Everyone was friendly, staff and locals make visitors feel welcome. Good range of real ales, and great selection of spirits. All this within easy walking distance of the cathedral, castle and city centre. Don't be put off by the rather ordinary exterior. There is a warm welcome inside.

No piped music, no gambling machines, no video screens. Authentic period interior and friendly atmosphere.

Wonderful.

I just wish there were more pubs like this - give it a go and you'll see what I mean.

If you've ever fancied a spot of time travel then this is the place for you. A couple of pints and a bit of imagination and you're back in the early 1900s.

Cosy fires and welcoming staff. Choice of real pubs. It's like stepping back in time when stepping inside. The only serve toasties- a choice of cheese and onion or ham and cheese. However the ham is off the bone, tender and no scrimping. Filling and exceptional value. A place to meet from a diverse background. The pub has won CAMRA awards and have met people from afar on a beer walk.

Stayed again over Easter and had a really pleasant stay. The Vic's bar is a traditional pub, unchanged since built in 1899, still with its separate bar and snug with open fires, real ales, a great selection of whiskies and gins and pleasant clientele. The rooms are of a very high standard with TVs and tea/coffee making facilities (which have plenty of coffee/milk etc. unlike many places!) Beautiful breakfasts. No food lunch/evening but plenty of restaurants nearby and very close to the main tourist centre with private parking. For a traditional pub stay that beats any chain hotel - highly recommended.
