A good solid Nicholson chain establishment that, despite being on the busy Cornmarket Street, was not overrun with tourists. probably due to its location at the bottom of a courtyard entrance.
Internally plenty of the usual dark wood décor familiar with Nicholson’s establishments with wooden floors , tables and chairs and low dark beamed ceilings.
But it also benefits from having a very pleasant outside seating area in the courtyard area to the front.
It was the last pub of the day for me so although I can’t remember the details I remember that the beers available were fairly mainstream offerings from the Nicholson list but I do remember also going for the Red Squirrel Hopfest Pale which was a good way to finish the day.

A lot smaller in comparison to the Chequers, but still very similar in style and layout. In fact by coincidence, I went for a repeat of the same beer Red Squirrel Hopfest. The bar faces you as enter with a choice of six ales on this visit. The wallpapered seating area to the left looked very inviting, but being a hot day we opted for the outside. There was a raised decking area outside, which was already full with customers, so we finished here with some pleasant vertical drinking in the sun.

Mr Fastard below has just about covered our visit here,I was rather amazed at the similarity to the Chequers upon entering the courtyard and had to do a double take.A rather standard and safe beer selection but the Red Squirrel Hopfest Pale was good.Nice pub.
