Just across the single-laned Handbridge to the main city centre, this is a pub that aspires to a higher end of the customer scale and gets a fair mix of locals and tourists whoís walk along the river ends here. The style is traditional but is almost entirely wooden in style and design and furniture which gives it its unique look at least within the city centre. Food is a reason many come here but itís possible and comfortable enough to come here just for drinks and a row of real ale pumps with craft options means itís not that different from other drinking holes despite its restaurant tag. I was here on a sunny Sunday afternoon and it was packed as a live folk band was playing. Unfortunately there is no outdoor area which it badly needs.
