A proper pub, even though they serve great food it doesn't feel like a restaurant - as so many pubs do these days. They serve a wide range of drinks including my favourite salted caramel vodka! The staff and customers are a friendly bunch, it...More

Was recommended this pub by a friend. We really liked it. Relaxed easy place with very good service. My wife hates pubs normally ( we live in Scotland ) but really enjoyed the Hole in T Wall. Thanks

Lovely pub and friendly, cosy atmosphere, me and my boyfriend both had a flavoured gin and lemonade and were impressed by the range of 26 different gins available. The staff were also really friendly.
