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 and won Vincent the Branch's first Real Ale Champion award in 2010. Up to sixteen beers are on offer including local breweries, with an emphasis on microbreweries. The interior comprises two rooms on either side of the bar plus a large upstairs function room. A pleasant sun-trap patio also provides covered space for smokers. Food focuses on home-cooked Italian dishes, though traditional pub food is also available.
