The small and elegantly tiled frontage of this city centre pub in the shadow of the Cathedral belies the extensive open-plan interior, which has a mixture of lounge and dining areas. Multiple video screens operate at all times. There is a quieter conservatory area overlooking the river, and a pool room behind the bar. An extensive food menu is available, including breakfast (for which the pub opens 08:00-11:00 daily). Regular live music appears Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Children are welcome until 21:00.
