Real ale beer bar completely refurbished and reopened in April 2018. On entering the pub the front bar is reminiscent of industry with heavy beams and corrugated iron and solid bench tables, then into the main bar of Steampunk, and at the back it opens out conjuring up Victorian concepts, all visually entertaining and intriguing. Six real ales are available, at least four of which change regularly. Situated in New Street just off the main High Street at the mini-island, this interesting modern conversion of a terraced Georgian pub is well worth a visit.
