A regular haunt that has lost it's place within the gay community. Full of straight people and the gay community that have supported it for decades are shoved out over the £. Severely disappointed but not surprised. Judgemental looks for just being with your husband.

This historic bar is only 1 1/2 blocks from the train station...the staff are extremely friend...the drinks are very affordable...in an ad it describes itself as "a relaxed gay bar in an authentic Victorian pub"...I couldn't agree more!
