Another good pub in Peterborough. On this visit it had only just opened (early for the beer festival).
They serve two regular ales plus up to six guest ales. A real cider is also sold.
The decor is flagstone floor and dark wooden benches and tables. These are set about the single room in the nooks and crannies and use the chimney breast to good effect. Some high stools are also on offer around tall round tables.
The toilets are down some steps though no sign of a disabled toilet.
There is a beer garden too, where you can soak up the sun and watch the dogs run about. A real fire for winter.
The bar welcomes you to the left of the entrance and has eight handpumps on it - all full.
No food here other than snacks.
Well worth a short detour if you are on your way to the Palmerston/Cherry Tree/Charters. On the south of the river, not far from the beer festival and London Road where there is lots of accommodation.
Family friendly and parking available. Occasional live music
