This side-street boozer is a welcome break from the chain pubs of town. Regulars play darts in the main bar that features a palewood gantry complete with mirrors and clock. A simple small lounge to the rear is more cosy. The corridor abutting the bar features elaborate floor tiles, decorated mirrors, and even a short panel of snob screens. Children are welcome in the grassy beer garden, an unusual feature in the area. One or two beer festivals a year.
