fantastic two sided pub with a beautiful looking bar in between. Efficient friendly staff and a real proper drinkers pub atmosphere to the place. A pub you could easily spend a night in. Excellent pint of Landlord too.

Unchanged pub from 1899 - with a central bar that takes some getting too... the snob screens on the left hand side mean you cannot see the beers - the alternative is to fight your way through the bar hangers on stools on the right hand side.

Plenty of old school pub memorabilia to look at.

Was in the 2018 Good Beer Guide but not the 2019.

Timothy Taylor Landlord a lovely find.

Proper old style interior as described below and well worth the short trip from the city centre. The central island bar serves 6 real ales,"craft keg" and keg.
