Lovely pub. A good selection of well kept real ales. Tasty, freshly made food which in itself is well worth a return visit. (I would go so far as to say the pizza was the nicest I have had).

Sited a few metres outside the city walls, this is a very pleasant pub with an excellent selection of beers and a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. We were there for an after-dinner beer and chat - this pub is ideal for a meeting of friends.

Went here last night on my way to a gig at the barbican. Great selection of beers, ciders. A fairly old fashioned type of pub, but all the better for it. I had a veggie calzone diavolo pizza, it was very well spiced and lovely....More
