Eccentric, welcoming and entertaining! What a find, a quirky very individual craft ale bar in a good location. The range of beers is impressive including some lovely local brews. Karen and her team are on hand to provide warm hospitality and live music is also a feature. Loved it !

A great selection of craft beers reasonably priced. Brilliant staff and atmosphere and some strange rooms. Try the adults only room upstairs. 😎
