Renovated from its 1880 origins, this site is a fresh rethink on the Victorian tavern feel, with the same rustic wooden paneling, antique furniture and hardwood beams, interspersed with more stylish modern leather booth seats, a pool table and Sky Sports on the big screen for those big all important matches.

Great pub grub will keep your stomach from grumbling, too, with a tasty selection of meaty burgers from £6.95, alongside pastas, salads, sandwiches and other tasty sharers and snacks. Munch alongside your bitter brews, refreshing pints, fine wines and classy cocktails in a cosy second home.

With a gorgeous beer garden to boot, stretch out and soak up the rays in a timber paradise and watch those hazy summer sunsets from a comfy seat.

2 burgers for £10, and you get a LOT of food. They do good gigs. The food is not haute cuisine, but it's good enough for me. Atmosphere is that which one would expect in a pub, and they do some good beers. The traffic outside makes it an exciting ordeal to make it to the front door.
