This multi-level JD Wetherspoon pub opened in early May 2009 replacing a previous Yates' wine bar. It is branded as a Lloyds No. 1 themed bar, which means it's noisier than a normal Wetherspoon pub.

Quiet and often food oriented trade during the week and early in evening but it can be increasingly livelier - especially on Friday & Saturday & Monday evenings - when it is often very busy.

In February 2017 the pub was purchased from JD Wetherspoon by the Stonegate pub company, who plan to turn it back into a Yates's.
