An immediately appealing pub near (but uphill from) the bus station. I felt very comfortable here and enjoyed an excellent late lunch of sticky ribs and salad.

I sat in the main bar and listened to some locals chatting about the Camra beer festival which was about to open at 17:00 hours. I liked this place, the beer was fine, the food looked good, and there was a good selection of vinyl records in the other bar.
