This is a town centre pub which offers accommodation. Our room was on the top floor and was spacious and comfortable with real filter coffee available (which is rare and a good touch). A very comfortable king size bed with duvet (a bit too warm for me). Shower room was a rather cramped but functional and the room decoration was not to my taste.
Breakfast was very good and served in the delightful ‘den’. The first night we had a meal in the pub which was good pub food. In addition, the pub offers freshly made pizza bread with whatever topping you want and must be worth a try if you fancy a pizza. There is a great range of real ales, well kept and served.
Staff were really friendly and helpful.
As mentioned, this is a town centre pub which is great for mooching around the interesting shops and little alleyways and quirky buildings but it can also be a bit lively in the evenings since this is a popular place where locals gather for the craic. I liked this place for its history, nooks and crannies, and the fact it dates back centuries. This is definitely not a plastic antiseptic place so don’t expect lifts and liveried employees. I would stay here again.
