Food and drink
It feels so obvious to say the food here is proper British grub with a modern twist, as it’s exactly what you’d expect – but then what’s wrong with that? Pork and apple sausages with sage mash sit on the menu alongside beef and ale pie and good ol’ fish and chips. Smaller appetites will enjoy lighter bites and sandwiches.
I like my lamb to render a knife unnecessary, it should simply fall away from the bone with a fork. This shoulder of lamb simply melts in the mouth (£14.95).
Lively atmosphere provided by loyal locals in-the-know and visitors with smiles delighted to have stumbled on this place.
Informal but extremely friendly and helpful.
On the canalside, though there are no tables outside. You’ll find the pub down some stairs off the uninspiring City Road.
It’s not cheap, and you rarely find a deal. Main courses go for between £9 and £14, light bites around £6 and a pud is around a fiver.
