I visited this pub after reading the reviews on this site, and whilst it didn't let me down, it was only average. (I do set high standards though).
On the plus side, it is an old place, with two seperate rooms, with an upper bar that has to be left to go outside into the street, before entering the lower bar if in need of the toilet - a fairly unique experience I like.
It had some decent beer on the bar, including Bradfield Blonde and Thwaites Wainwright, but for whatever reason, it seemed to be lacking in atmosphere, but maybe it is not always like this ?

Ancient looking old pub, cosy and friendly with upper and smaller lower bar. Beer was good Brampton's Stout in particular was excellent

Great old building and top class town centre pub. Plenty of decent ales to choose from and friendly staff and locals. Free buffet doing the rounds last night as well.

Well worth a visit, in my opinion.

Afraid I can't help with opening times as I visited on a Friday afternoon. However, I can advise that the quality of the beer in here is excellent. Had a pint of Chatsworth Gold and a couple of Jaipurs and thoroughly enjoyed them. Did not sample food so cannot comment.
