Set in a small part of the historic port area still remaining. It retains a half timbered front with dormer windows. An unusual gravity dispense system is used which incorporates a row of old wooden casks to good effect and guarantees a temperature controlled real ale.
Families are welcome to mix with an interesting and diverse clientelle which includes international travellers attracted from the rejuvenated wet dock and students from the new university campus.
