It was encouraging to visit a pub that doesn't play loud music, that doesn't offer an endless range of over chilled beers and you don't feel uncomfortable when you walk in. Indeed the gunmakers arms was none of these things. A well-presented bar area, with...More

On the edge of the City Centre you will need to find your way to the Gunmakers Arms. It is worth finding. The pub serves a range of Two Towers Beers. A real pub serving real ales. It was quite when we were there but...More
