See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
On the corner of Fore Street and Clifford Street, and opposite the town's War Memorial, the earliest records of this pub are for 1798, when John Tucket was a 'victualler', at the premises. This is a convivial single bar pub, with a fish and chip shop opposite its side entrance. On entering the premises, there is a pool table to your left and a window seat to your right. The bar has a large open fireplace, which has an equally large woodburner within it. There is a raised area at the left hand rear of the bar area, which is used as a stage when there is live music. There are several more small tables and stools around the bar area, one of which is a window seat.
