Great place only a couple of minutes walk from Albert square. Excellent range of beers with a whole board devoted to their bottled range. There is also a special menu for gins so plenty of choice for everyone.

The entrance is on Bridge Street. You go down a set of steps. Wood St runs parallel behind.
