Firstly, this is first and foremost a craft beer bar so don't confuse it with a normal pub. Yes, it sells a wide range of beer, including cask, plus a huge choice of gins but it's meant to be different to a normal pub and...More

Great variety of beer and gin. Also wine is very good quality at reasonable price. Quirky bar, good, knowledgeable staff. Very good alternative to a traditional pub

Great variety of beers, bottles and pumps, gins, vodkas and prosecco. You can even buy your own bottle of spirit with mixers and they will keep it safe in the vault for your visits. Friendly staff and you are always made welcome. Highly recommend.

Very good selection of real ales on keg and cask, coupled with a wide variety of bottled beers and other drinks. The building has been tastefully decorated and there are plenty of tables and chairs. A nice place to relax and friendly staff.

There is street parking but the road is pretty busy. You might find something behind as there is a courtyard there serving some shops and offices. We walked from our hotel so didn’t need parking. Sorry can’t be more helpful .
