We caught this on a bad day as the barman was pig ignorant and had a uninviting and unfriendly manner. The pub had four handpumps with three on, we chose the Cross Bay. It was only when the barman commented about cask ale, saying he had no interest in the stuff and added he couldn't stand the stuff, with an attitude of comtempt, that I told him that he was not very inspiring to the customer. He didn't give a damn, so we left. A decent pub by the looks of it, it only takes some idiot to bring a place down to their level. The pub got a six for the building and its fixtures and fittings and beer range. I would call again when the barman is thrown out.

An atmospheric old city pub dating in parts from the 17th Century though much of the brickwork on display is more modern. There are hops draped from the ceiling, wooden floors and a couple of carpeted bits and a few old prints dotted around the walls. Four ales on - I had a pint of Growler's Gladness, which was in perfect condition. If time had allowed I would have tried the other 3. There is free wifi, and they host occasional live music acts. Staff were very helpful and friendly, and clientele were mostly civilised. A definite for a city crawl.

I really like this pub - almost rural but in the heart of the city. Good beers on tap, friendly staff and an authentic feel. The sort of pub that you can spend all day in.
