Harden's survey result
This beamed 18th-century inn, near the cathedral, makes a cosy place for a local real ale; the food elicited scant commentary this year, though one reporter claimed that the bar snacks compared favourably to the dining room’s bistro-style fare.
A “quaint and welcoming” Grade II-listed inn with an “excellent location opposite the cathedral” and “great character and charm”; it wins praise for some “excellent” gastro grub and “it's a GBG pub too”, meaning “good beer” is a given!
