Pub on Hills Road; also offers B&B accommodation. Does food, has a courtyard beer garden. Has wireless internet, but I don't know if it's free or if it's only for overnight guests. There's a flatscreen and at least one sofa.
As of September 2010 they had three real ales on, all Greene King brands — Hardy and Hansons Kimberley Bitter, St Edmunds Ale (£1.65/half), and Greene King IPA (£2.20/pint).
This pub is very handy for the Junction, so I've been in on several occasions for a pre-gig drink or meal. The food is pretty good, in a slightly-smart pub-grub sort of way. Their mixed grill was very good.
As of September 2010, full English breakfast costs £5 and is served 7:30am-11:30am Mon-Fri, 7:30am-4pm Sat, and 8:30am-4pm Sun; and other food is served noon-3pm and 6pm-9pm Mon-Fri, noon-4pm and 6pm-9pm Sat, and noon-8pm Sun (Sunday roast).
Accessibility: Small step and a ridge to get in. Stepfree to toilets, bar, and seating area from there.
