Old pub offering 3 or 4 ales. Some sections were 'reserved', and one of the beers we tried tasted 'off' (though in fairness it was replaced without question), but still probably worth a visit as it's in an attractive part of the city.

Trades on it's location and claims to be 'oldest pub in the city/ county/ country'. Quirky outside but bland corporate interior. An improvement on the ale front with a few Farr's and Purity brews on - which were drinkable. It's popular with younger folk and the dining didn't dominate. Still lacks atmosphere and although the ales were okay didn't fancy staying for another.

I would love to drink here on a regular basis. Unfortunately, at £4.95 a pint!!!!!! I can't afford it.
The beer choice is great but beyond the budget of normal people.

Been three years since my last visit.

Beer wise, things have improved - 8 real ales on and a much broader selection. Enjoyed my Woodforde Wherry.

Food Wise, I was a little disappointed to see laminated chainy style menus. I remember when it was ever changing nightly printed out A4.

Everything else as I remember and a must visit pub. Just to say you've been to (one of) the oldest pubs in England.

Now has possibly the best range of ales in town with 8 beers all from local breweries including Farr, Leighton Buzzard & 3Brewers. Three dark beers on offer including the excellent Smokin Angel & Most Potent Porter by Farr.
The young ladies behind the bar were very enthusiastic about the beers.
Unfortunately the prices are ridiculous (£4.50)
