Terribly rude student barman. No-one in the pub and he seemed to have a problem about the noise of 6 people talking.Plenry of better pubs in TW to visit. Try them and not this place.

We spotted this place on TA , so had to try. Lovely old place set in the famous pantiles. Crowded but friendly. Decent selection of beers to choose from . Good seating and plenty of locals using it. Well worth a visit.

A decent location and range of drinks if you can get served. Nice sitting outside. Inside is cramped and needs a spruce up.
