Friendly pub with entrances onto two different streets. A few steps to negotiate, and uninteresting decor, but a good selection of ales - changing even whilst we were there. Food menu spotted but not tried.

An old pub with lots of history with various nooks and crannies. I had the Oak ale, a session beer, though other ales including greene king IPA were on. Also had an interesting selection of craft beers on tap - the punk IPA particularly good. Probably the best pub in the vicinity when compared with the Eclipse or old Vine. Definitely visit again.

Interesting pub, playing on its history. Although, it seemed very modern inside.

They had Black Sheep Special on - which was a good find and in decent condition.

Less could be said about the food. I ordered the Steak - which I wouldn't have given to my dog. It had the consistency of a burger and very fatty.

Still, if you don't expect too much, you are not disappointed.

interesting place. the building is very beautifull and the way it is squeezed into a medieval alley way adds to that. inside there are lots of wonderfull old elements, but you cant help feeling it could be so much more charming and there is a bit of a feel of a chain pub inside. however if you are lucky to sit at table no.1 which is a window table up the stairs in the small room off the bar, you have the most incredible setting for your pint. you sit in amongst the beams, and look out onto the charming medieval alley. its such a pretty setting its almost like a film set. also credit to the bar staff who were keen to let customers know about the history of the building. atmosphere was lively was lots of loud laughing groups of student types and a fair few tourists aswell. also the beer was very good, 5 or 6 variaties including a great offering from the Kite brewery

would like to confirm some of the below comments... oldest pub in England? very old building with a fascinating history yes.. but oldest? not by a few hundred years.
