Two rooms with a serving bar in the middle. The first room is heavily decorated with pumpclips, and very British with the Union Jack on the outside and on the inside. Wooden interiors with large tables and benches. A backstreet located freehouse with eight changing cask ales in addition to ciders and a bottled menu. British rock from Bowie and Costello at out stay at the pub. Cozy and friendly atmosphere. (Visited with Finn early on a Saturday afternoon 29.04.2017).
Odd boozer tucked away off Temple Street, had to ask for directions, or else I would never have found it. Pub is homely enough, although the number of Union Jacks and England flags is a bit over the top. Service fine and the pint of Daggers was enjoyable, not great but worth a quick visit.
Visited on a Friday evening in July. Tucked away just off Victoria St the venue has a large decked outside area, loud pop hits from the 00s blaring and a turtle or two overseeing affairs. Couple of rebadged Beerd beers as house beers on plus a good range of guests. Camra discount, beer tat everywhere makes the place nice. Beer was good, decent prices, friendly staff. Worthy of a stop off
shabby back-corner local with character t it...very much like someones living room that just happens to have a lot of cask available. And lots of pumpclips.
Hot pies/ pork pies available with decent selection of chutney. Always a good cross-section of society in from students to CAMRA types to old couples. Beers generally in good condition (cask) though not always the most adventurous.

We visited here on Saturday 3rd January 2015, we being me, Loz, Isobel and Berry (Isobelís dog) it being a dog friendly pub it was a must visit. I must say that Loz and Isobel were back peddling when we got towards the pub, I think the Union Jacks and other patriot paraphernalia really put them off, even inside I think Loz was still rather unimpressed. Beer choice more limited than it suggestís with just a handful of handpumps on offer including two from XT (our most local brewery) I had a Heavy Industry Collaborator a beer that Iíve had before but there was nothing new for me here. The place is a little cluttered and a little bit tatty, a large fish tank at the rear near the toilets had a few large terrapins bobbing about, photos, and hundreds of beer pump clips festooned the
