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.
