The Hanging Bat


This rustic bar with its wooden counter and floors, its quaint picnic tables and its luxurious red leather sofas is both stylish and homely at the same time. Settle into a cosy seat with your mates, a date, or your peers after a hard days work. The beer taps take funky new shapes here, carved into wooden bats, so even the equipment is quirky and fun.

With 6 casks, 14 keg lines and 120+ bottles and cans of beer, your tastes are sure to be addressed by these attentive bar staff. Fear not beer-haters, there's also an extensive wine list and a selection of spirits to choose from. And if you have those awkward conversation-halting stomach grumbles (it happens...), try out some top grub, from hot dogs to Meatloaf inspired burgers, starting at £7.

With friendly staff and a lively atmosphere to ice the cake, this venue hits the spot. If you're a beer connoisseur or a lover of BBQ dishes, this place will definitely put a smile on your face.
