Just a swift visit as I had a train departure for London. Not busy, but I did spot Alice and Ian of the new Doncaster Brewery at the bar. 15% CAMRA discount available.

The pub is found in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, DN1 3EH.

This small, town centre pub in Cleveland Street markets itself as a ‘Dive Bar’. Originally established in 2010 as a tap for the now-defunct Toad Brewery, it is now going it alone as a specialist beer bar. Haphazardly painted inside and decorated seemingly with the randomly distributed contents of a junk shop. An upstairs room is brought in to use at busy times, and there is a roof terrace. It is overall a highly eccentric venue. %age discount on real ale prices given to card holding CAMRA members (some exceptions with some ales). 12 handpumps, 2 of which regularly carry cider. Permanently closed in late 2017.

We have visited this pub 5 times, seen 44 different beers and tried 9 of them.
