Good Pub Guide Recommended

Unchanging and neatly kept Victorian pub with royal memorabilia, cheerful locals and well kept regional ales; bedrooms

The original Victorian décor is still in place here and the immaculately kept inn remains charming and unspoilt - just how the long-serving owners like it. Three small rooms, leading off a central bar, have mahogany, etched and cut glass and mirrors, colourful William Morris wallpaper over a high panelled dado, some maroon plush seats in little booths, leatherette wall seats and long narrow drinkers' tables. Also, coal fires in handsome iron and tile fireplaces, photographs and articles showing a real pride in the pub, lots of period prints and engravings of Queen Victoria, and staffordshire figurines of her and the Prince Consort. Big Lamp Lamp Light, Durham White Stout, Fyne Jarl and Wylam Gold Tankard on handpump, over 35 irish whiskeys, 60 scottish malts and fair-priced house wines; dominoes. Attractive bedrooms, hearty breakfasts and free off-street parking make this little gem perfect for exploring the city's castle and cathedral. Credit cards are accepted only for accommodation.
