Do not be fooled regardless of the name I would actually consider this more of a pub that anything else. Upon entering the pub it is one long oblong shaped room with the bar on the right hand side with seating along the left all the way to the back and round the right hand side. there are also lots of quirky little nick knacks and pictures that give this a nice feel. Despite its name there is a pub style bar layout with numerous keg fronts dispensing standard and premium proucts with a good selection, not just a couple, i remember Peroni and Tiger sticking out. the only difference from a standard pub is they also have a largish wine selection and make some cocktails as well. The pub has Theakstons branding on the outside and on the pub sign which indicates a tie to them and there where two real ales on the bar with one being their Light foot. The other was a very nicely kept pint of Old Mill Brewerys Blonde Bombshell for £3.45 which was a very enjoyable pint.

I only came across this place recently because i thought is was a wine bar but was pleasantly surprised with what i found, its trying hard to be something else but in reality it really is a pub and quite a nice one, why is it not content at that? why try and change when your doing nicely as you are? Anyway I would happily return here for a few as the beer changes and is in a good condition at an average price, somewhere your wife/girlfriend would like.
