Rob Hunter left this review about The Punch Bowl

This feels more like a restaurant than a bar, however it does sport a big traditional pub style bar counter and there is no issue going in just for a drink. The seating feels more "foody" though somehow. That said, I did notice a smaller room on my way out that looked more "pubby" like a little snug or something with less formal seating. It is also a hotel.

At the bar were four hand pulls, two of these were on offering Old Mill La Bolsa (coffee porter) and Old Mill Bullion (bitter). The La Bolsa was £1.63 for a half and perfectly decent. It looked like another may have been in the process of being pulled through, but not sure if they were having problems as it seemed to then get abandoned.

Service was friendly. Not too busy at the time of my weekday visit just before 2pm, I'd say there were three or four tables dining.

Gents were clean, fresh and modern.

Nice place; I'd be happy to go back.
