With homegrown food, a continental choice of cask ales and a bustling entertainment programme, Lady Greys is everything a good pub should be. These guys cultivate a menu of traditional British food with modern twists; expect all your favourites as well as an indulgent Sunday Roast offering. Cask ales are from all corners of the globe, and there's regular live music and comedy nights.

There's no questioning the star of the show at The Bridge Tavern. Proudly housed on the ground floor, the two-hectolitre microbrewery churns out bespoke cask ales fresh for the supping. This is a place for kicking back and relaxing, and there's fish & chips, Galloway beef pie or roast salmon masala on hand if you should fancy a hearty bite to eat.

A must-try for those with hipster hankerings, The Hop and Cleaver is a delicious den of American inspired grub and beer. Whether you're throwing back a flat iron steak with cheese sauce and fries for £12.95, or a seriously sweet 'Oreo Bomb', indulge in their must-try meat dishes and beers from the live 'tap room'; all in a raw den of beer barrels and broody bare brick.
