See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Small corner-house pub with mix of students and locals. Following a renovation this pub now has a lovely atmosphere. There is a heated covered area for smokers, a polished wood floor, nice furniture, celebrity photos on the wall and a jukebox with 5000 selections.

The guest ales come from the Heineken list and can be quite varied. On a visit in March 2023 the beers were Greene King Yardbird, Butcome Bitter and Gales HSB. Basically the cellar man will choose what he thinks is a good beer and will be popular with his clientele which can produce unexpected surprises at a fair price (£4.00 a pint in March 2023). Two handpumps are immediately on your left on entering, the third can be found further down the bar.
