The Great Exhibition is a Victorian pub with a modern twist. The quirky interior filled with wooden tables, wall exhibits and leather sofas give it a warm and welcoming atmosphere. They serve up delicious British pub food at unbeatable prices. Most meals are less than a tenner which is a great deal for the quality. The Sunday roasts are also a big hit with visitors. The pub has not one, but two beer gardens to enjoy when the weather permits. The gin alley isn't something you'll see everyday and was made for exactly what you think, drinking gin. 

Besides the delicious food and long list of drinks they are known for their unique events. Saturday mornings you can find artisan markets with locals trading craft items while other evenings there are ale and pie society events and real ale festivals. The Great Exhibition is perfect for a relaxing afternoon, a family meal or drinks any day of the week.
