Great atmosphere great selection of beers. Always call in here when in town wether day or night. Can be very busy on weekend at night but still worth calling in. Staff are friendly and always make you welcom. Not just another town centre pub.

Fabulous decor. Warm, cosy and welcoming. Excellent service with good selection of drinks. Pleasant background music - not too loud so you can still have a conversation. Will return soon.
