Old Pub with cosy warm rooms. Had soup and a coffee which were fine. Interesting photos on the wall as Robert Raikes founder of the Sunday School movement lived in the house

Stopped for a drink following a visit to the Cathedral and Quays for the day. What a great place! Excellent beer, Samuel Smith's, and gin! Friendly bar staff, and great little rooms with open fires to relax by. Would recommend a visit.
