See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Traditional local with the city’s best beer garden, overlooking the cathedral and also the site of an artillery battery which bombarded the cathedral during the Civil War. Inside, the central serving area serves a pub games-focused bar, and a cosy lounge. Snacks include a tempting selection of cheeses. Two or three guest ales are usually available, generally from local breweries. The nearby historic home of Erasmus Darwin – Lunar Society founder and grandfather to Charles – is well worth visiting.
