What they're saying about us...

Quirky bare-boards 19th-c local with four particularly well kept changing ales, two or three good continental lagers on tap and many other beers from around the world, friendly staff, no food, dark panelling, snug old corners and lots of nautical and other bric-a-brac, additional side and back rooms; background music (can be loud); no children and a bit too steppy for disabled access, pavement picnic-sets, open all day Fri-Sun

— The Good Pub Guide
Well described below, this iconic pub is a GBG regular and rightly so. It’s a proper ale house in a large Victorian property on a busy junction so is appealing to the eye as well as the palate.
— Pubs Galore - Maiden Man
This busy pub is decorated to reflect the Bermuda Triangle story. The single room bar is on three levels. The walls and ceiling display a range of artifacts relating to ships and planes including maps, newspaper cuttings and ship and aircraft fittings. Run by the same owner for 25 years the bar has four handpumps offering an ever changing range of ales sourced locally and throughout the UK as well as speciality lagers and foreign beers.
