The beer board showed an impressive range of beers BUT there was nothing to differentiate keg/cask. It gradually emerged that only 5 of the 20 or so beers were actually cask (half of the beer engines were duplicates) and several of those very ordinary but...More

What a great bar to gather together a group before going on. In this case just across the road. Great line up of quality ales and reasonable wines by the glass. The interior is modern and even at 6pm there is a good atmosphere.
