Sadly the C&A of old is no more. This USED to be a great atmospheric bar across several rooms and floors. Buzzing with life and cozy corners serving good food. After being closed for a year or more it has reopened as a gutted brightly...More

Now no upstairs and no food. One bar staff on a Saturday evening and only a handful of customers. Music on a jukebox and BT Sports on 3 screens. At 10.25 the bell was rung for last orders - on enquiring what time they closed...More

As most have said, the burgers are decent. Ale is also very good. Good for watching sports and the bar staff were efficient and friendly. Shame it's closing. Lower Marsh badly needs a pub like this to stay.
