Ever-popular unpretentious city escape

At a glance

Bar menu
Wheelchair access

A classic little city pub with the character of a Victorian drinking house; lots of dark panelled nooks and crannies, dim lighting, impressive original bar and a cosmopolitan crowd of locals. Condemned Victorian prisoners took their last meals here; today’s crowd are more fortunate, revelling in beers such as Bath Ales and chowing down on no-nonsense pub fare like chilli con carne with rice and cheese; lasagne al forno with garlic bread; and fish pie. A selection of burgers and a beef and Gem Ale pot pie are also on offer. An added attraction of a rather eccentric nature, is the model train that runs the length of the bar.
