GBG listed for the last couple of years, hard to find for a visitor to the city but not too far from the One-Eyed Rat. Victorian building set on a corner in a residential area near the fire and ambulance stations. A single large room brightly decorated in red and cream, horse brasses and china mugs over the bar, a Tetley's clock and big cabinet full of trophys above the fire, in a good way this reminds me a bit of some pubs 30 years ago, a real locals pub in spite of its CAMRA listing. Pool table at one end and a telly at the other, friendly locals and staff. Fair choice of beers on hand pull all in good order but nothing very exciting, John Smith's Cask, Theakstons Best, Deuchars IPA and the best of the bunch John Smith's Magnet. Apparently brewed at Camerons you wouldn't think it came from the same stable as the Cask, which is supposedly contract brewed by Holts. Bit of a stale doggy smell about the place. Usual suspects for lager etc.
