Very large pub that is part of the John Barras chain. The bar is split over two levels. As you enter there is a fireplace near the main entrance and some tables and chairs to the front with a pool table and games machines. This leads through to the main bar area which is fully carpeted and has some high tables and chairs and comfortable lounge seating dotted about. The bar is bright and airy and is predominantly decked out with pine furnishings, smart chandelier type lighting and has old Barras brewery pictures adorning the walls. There is a small juke box on the wall near to the bar.

To the right of the main entrance there is a small raised area with lounge seating, tables and chairs and a small fireplace. To the left of the bar is another small raised area with similar seating. Children are allowed in this area between 11am- 7pm. A wooden staircase leads up to a huge upper level which overlooks the main bar downstairs. Once again there is plenty of seating with tables and chairs. There is also lounge seating by the windows to the front as well as some cosy snug areas dotted about. At one end there is a small bar and juke box is also located near to the toilets.

Regular music is on play at most times. Live sporting events are shown on large drop down screens located both upstairs and downstairs and widescreen TV's, with all live football and six nations rugby shown. The bar attracts a steady student crowd and is also frequented by locals and business people. All in all the bar has a very pleasant atmosphere and is a good place to relax and enjoy a drink.  A quiz night is held every Sunday (music) & Thursday (general knowledge) from 8.30pm. Cash back facility is available and a cashlink machine is located opposite to the bar.

Outside there is a seating area with tables and chairs that is used in fine weather. Disabled access is excellent with a ramp outside leading to the main bar area. There is also a designated disabled toilet at the rear. Toilets located on both levels are small and clean.

Price: Very Reasonable.
