The Castiglione family, who have run this city-centre pub for over 30 years, bought the freehold from Punch Taverns in 2009. It has since become a showcase for quality beers which won Vincent the Branch's first Real Ale Champion award in 2010. It offers up to 16 beers, including from local breweries. There are two rooms downstairs and a large function room upstairs. A sun-trap patio also provides covered space for smokers. Food focuses on home-cooked Italian dishes.
