Came in here at about 7.30pm hoping for something to eat but apparently there has been a change to the hours of service and food is available only 12 to 7 (weekdays) and 12 to 5 (on Saturdays). Two real ales on the bar, but we were hungry so didn't stop for a drink.

A fairly short (though potentially confusing) walk from the station, and it doesn't necessarily scream ‘pub' from the outside. Two ales available from interesting small breweries (Flaxen Horse and White Cross on my visit this week) which were a mixed bag quality-wise (though I did note that as the first customer in that day the beer wasn't pulled through at all, which probably explains why).

The interior has lots of nautical tat scattered around (it's near the now filled-in canal), including a huge ships wheel by the bar and a load of gold balls above the bar (not sure why). There are various cosy drinking areas - the circular seating area by the main door is a nice touch. There's pool, darts and a TV available. Perhaps most interesting though are the table tops - which are covered entirely in old 1/2p coins.

Overall, not too bad though make sure that your beer is pulled through if you're ordering at 7:02pm. Beware that this place doesn't open until 7 on weekdays.
