A tiny pub with the smallest bar space I have ever seen. A great experience: like having a drink in someone's front room. Worth combining with a visit to the very nearby White Horse

Now has two ales on (Tetleys and Robinson Dizzy Blonde). Still worth a visit but can be difficult when busy (as in more than 10 people in the place)

Very small pub, you are best getting here early or you may not physically be able to get in! Two hand pubs included Tetleys and Robinsons Dizzy Blonde. The beer quality was okay when I went in and the prices didn't seem ridiculous. It's one to say you've been into as it's meant to have the smallest bar in Europe but not one to come back to unfortunately.

Lovely little trad boozer in the heart of the city centre, not abundant in ales but what I had was more than acceptable. The locals were especially welcoming and the pub appears to be competent at self regulating - as I arrived a gobby drunk was in the process of spectacularly ejecting himself. A very enjoyable visit all round. 8/10

We were fortunate enough to get a seat in the front room as soon as we arrived and the Tetley's Cask was very good. Didn't try the Dizzy Blonde. The handpainted modern canvases for sale don't quite sit with the open coal fires and the nationally-important historic interior. Because it is such a small place, drinks are brought to your table and it is quite easy to get into conversation with other drinkers. Horse racing and football on the prominent TVs yesterday lunchtime. Liked it here.
