17:00 visit. Last call today. This place has changed hands a few times since it's proper Real Ale pub position. It was a regular gbg entry, seven times over, but last in the guide in 2005. Has been much "trendified" and done up in a more contempory bar/cafe style with quality food on offer. The impressive Malt Whisky menu caught my attention too. Nice place. Your last/first call, convenient for the station.
