Roger Button left this review about The Armoury

Situated on the quayside by the historic Welsh Bridge, the building that currently houses the Armoury pub was apparently moved from its original site in 1922 and was previously used as a bakery and a warehouse before becoming a pub in 1995. The interior is quite cavernous (the restaurant used to be separate but now everything is knocked through into one) but despite the barn like ambience, there was a good civilized buzz about the place. Whilst it can easily be labelled a Gastropub, the diners and drinkers are well mixed together and I didn’t feel uncomfortable sitting amongst people who were specifically there for the dining which can sometimes be a bit unsettling. There are plenty of old pictures and photos around the walls but they seem to be very random and not particularly relevant or localized. The two ends contain laden bookcases and there are a few ad hoc antique collectables dotted about. Note also the old air pressure message tubes. The main reason for my visit was naturally the excellent beer selection which, getting towards the end of a long day I didn’t actually make a note of suffice to say there were several local ales on (I think) 8 hand pumps. If you really need to know, check the place out for yourself – it certainly gets my recommendation.
