Always friendly service, always decent beer with plenty of choice. Prices are a bit on the high side but on par with prices in other boozers in the city. Decent choice of crisps and Scotch Eggs.

Easy to miss this small down stairs bar has a great selection of beers and ciders including gluten free. Wonderful place to chat with family/friends over a drink or several. Only serves snacks but they are superb.

Top place on Bridge Street which usually has a well-curated beer list with something to suit all tastes - hopefully. Anyhow, we enjoyed our stouts and the bar staff are really helpful too.

Subterranean bar on Bridge St. Popped in early evening & no seats. Office workers & sadly pretty loud though with some shriek females. Ho hum. A few nights later it was mellow, laid back & damn fine beer. Sadly, by order of management, they aren't...More
