Obviously I have to be careful here as I don't want to sully my own doorstep lol, but there's a reason why out of four close pubs, I choose this as my local. Great music, great staff and great beer all contribute to an atmosphere that is warm and friendly, even on a quiet night. Haven't eaten there so can't comment on the food, but there are always decent bands on Saturday night and Sunday 4pm, so if you're visiting for the weekend, get your bottom there. If you happen to be staying for the week then you won't do better than Jesse Hutchinson on Tuesdays and Tilly and Townsend on Wednesdays.
