Pretty typical of the chain although the staff were very polite and helpful. Situated across the road from the Pound and The Westgate of the city . Which gives a great view if you ignore the constant traffic flow. Decent ale well kept.

So as far as they go it's ok, cheap beer, standard food, better than some as the building has some character but best avoided on weekend evenings.
