I'm a regular of about 7 years. It's changed managers, which has influenced food and beer, but has generally always been pretty good. Not any more. New management really has resulted in a decline of exciting beers and, more importantly, poor service. One bar girl...More

Great pub with a good range of well kept beers which change regularly. I also like the board which tells you how far away the beers are brewed. Burgers are really good as well served with chips and coleslaw. Staff are also friendly, thoroughly recommend

Lively place with loads of choice of real ales on sale. Good atmosphere with live bands most Saturday nights. Good choice of burgers on the menu and a nice beer garden to sit out in. Definitely worth a visit.

This pub took some finding by car, due to the unfathomable street plan, diversions, one way streets and intrusive tram network which all criss-cross this traditional old residential area. Once found though, and inside, it was terrific. Good range of beers - I had Draught...More

Good morning, sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately we don't have many gluten free options with our burger menu. However with some notice we might be able to give you a few options.
