The best real ales in town? Certainly, the Ship and Mitre’s always in the running. The best burgers in town? We’d have to say an unequivocal yes. Pine panelled pub arranged around a cental, circular bar, with pub quizzes and darts, legions of admirers, and a great selection of continental beers and local, and national guest ales. Fabulous.

    Maybe things have bucked up, but a few years back – OK, quite a few years back – we used to call this place the Shit & Shiter. Real ale was good, but surly bar staff gave you the impression they were doing you a favour by serving it.

    It certainly has. They couldn’t be nicer these days (and that’s before we wrote about them, too!)
