On the day that I visited, the landlord, Gary, was not present because he was organising the pubs float in the Minster Flower Parade. It’s great how micropubs get so involved in community events!


The pub itself is small and true to the micropub ethos. There’s a small bar, but ales are served from a cool room behind, although this is not visible to customers.   There are generally 3 cask ales on offer, plus a selection of ciders, wines and bar snacks.


I had a pint of Hobgoblin, the first time I had seen this particular ale in cask rather than bottle.  (Maybe I’ve just led a sheltered life!)

The pub is furnished with regular height wooden tables, a small one on the left, with padded bench seating around the wall. The right half of the pub is dominated by a large wooden table which about 10 people could sit around.

Dogs appeared to be welcome.  All in all, this was a great pub to visit.
