This is a great bar/restaurant. the double deal off peak is exceptional value. I adore their mussels and belgian chips. The cherry beer is awesome. I often take family and friends from out of town here. Really can't go wrong.

Visited with a couple of friends and can't speak highly enough of barmaid Becca. She guided us through the menu expertly and everything was to our taste. Such a friendly person who other staff should learn from. Great ambience and a top day all round.

The beer, while over priced, was amazing! And the food is great and there is loads of options. The service from the staff and the chefs ability to make nearly anything on the menu gluten free was incredible!!!

Great authentic decor and ambience. Lovely seating up and downstairs. This has a fab but huge menu for food and beer. So many mussel options, even better seafood though! Steaks come a little overcooked but great quality. Try matching the beer to the menu, it's such fun. Lovely waitresses, kind and helpful. Book yourself in though, it's so popular. If... More

Really busy pub but staff quick, obliging & knowledgeable about the food & beers. Not cheap but great quality. The weekday 2 for £12.50 would be great value. Coffee was excellent & so cheap. Difficult place for elderly/disabled as steps, uneven floors and steep stairs to be expected in a 16th century building. Would definitely recommend.

Gorgeous little Belgian beer house with a fine selection of beers. Only 3 halves of the strong stuff and you'll be stumbling down Pottergate. Don't miss the quaint little beer garden out the back in the summer months.

Thank oliverf747
