I visited with a friend for a quick drink. I had a very nice pint of Jabberwocky. The Townhouse plays very good music and has a nice atmosphere.

Beautiful home made soup with crispy croutons and roll. Partner had pie, mash and veg. Both very nice meals with good service. Feels a completely different environment than that of a Friday night.

Opposite the Hereward, and a lot quieter! Not too busy and not much of an atmosphere when we went in, Good enough choice of beers, and staff OK. Worth a visit
