A pub with its own theatre and art gallery, its high-Victorian Gothic interior incorporates an immense domed ceiling, stately-home fittings and towering mahogany island bar. Originally a library and later a bank, this impressively colonnaded building was designed by the same architect as part of St Philip’s Cathedral opposite. Pies take up a chunk of the menu, which also features grilled Loch Duart salmon and venison casserole with herb dumpling. Delicious desserts include and English cheeseboard and vintage ale sticky toffee pudding.
