Called in here by chance over the Easter weekend and what a great surprise, a proper pub with a friendly and funny landlord (Paul) and a great bunch of locals who made us feel at home. A good selection of beers and food looked good...More

We do love this place. Paul the landlord is very welcoming with his witty banter, involving others around the pub providing a community feeling, there is no malice and the pub is very friendly. Imagine your perfect local pub in the middle of the city...More

Fantastic little pub, the owner was absolutely brilliant, witty banter and quips. Had a ‘light bite’ from the menu for £5.25, big sandwich, good portion of chips and a little side of salad, excellent price. Would have loved to stay all day but heading home.

Great pub, nestled away down a side street. Friendly landlord, with a good selection of local ales, worth a visit.

Stopped here for lunch on way to Corsham, fantastic little pub up a lane, with a small secluded dining room upstairs, only 4 tables but the perfect size. Sandwiches were fantastic and the Italian chefs Italian singing was the perfect entertainment.

Good beer, good cider, wonderful food cooked by the Italian chef. The bar man is a proper character who shares his eclectic taste in music and GSOH with all. The place is small so time your visit right as it can be packed... looking forward...More

A small cosy pub, with good beer, excellent home made food and friendly landlord. Although it is in a very central position in Bath, it's worth a visit if you want to get away from the hordes of tourists. We had the Welsh chicken curry...More
