This is the best pub in the town centre. Despite being tucked away on the High Street (a fairly quiet back street), it was busy on my Saturday evening visit with all tables taken. Most people appeared to be in for the rugby. But there was also a pool table in use at one corner. The ale selection is probably the best in town. They had Marble Pint, Wye Valley HPA & Butty Bach, North Riding Ice Cream Porter & Sadlers Thin Ice. Cider was Black Dragon. I went for the Ice Cream Porter, which was delicious. Just could have done with a seat!

Terrific back-street pub that seems to attract a friendly mixture of locals and students. Good range of beers, comprehensive juke-box and nice staff. Highly recommended.

We were assured by two different interlocutors that this is the best pub in Aberystwyth and the ale selection and general cosiness were certainly winners - even if the presence of Herefordshire tipples among other English brews seemed a little unpatriotic. The barman's very drawing of the pint smacked of experience and the pub is located on a pleasantly undulating street.

Well worth finding this place which is tucked away down a side street. Wye Valley HPA is the regular along with cider and 4 guest ales. Excellent condition yesterday and pretty good service considering that it was crowded due to the arrival of a special train! Pool table and darts board. Usually opens at 1400 but can open earlier by prior arrangement. Easily the best pub in Aber.

This pub is criminally underrated. The guy behind the bar gives advice on what is good, what you'll like, what is new, what is tried and tested. The drink is excellent. As a ciderhead (with a beery friend), the cider was spot on.

A really excellent pub.
