Excellent old interior, lovely gantry and good atmosphere. Serves Stafford Press Cier, Bellhaven Best, Stella, Hoegarten, Guinness, Budvar, Duvel, Corona, Magners, Innes & Gunn as well as guest ales. We had a 1/2 each of Farne Island and Old Mortality -£2.90. Thought the toilets would be a good sight with the rest of the victoriana but they were boringly modern, although clean.
