Brewery Tap52-54 Lower Bridge Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A stunning former Jacobean banqueting hall, the inn won CAMRA's English Heritage Conservation and Conversion to Pub use awards in 2009. Charles I stayed in the Grade II listed building in 1645 and behind a perspex panel part of the original wall can still be seen. Reached by steps from the street, this city centre pub's stone floors, high ceilings and tapestries create a terrific ambience. A comprehensive, changing list of real ales from micros, many local, complements the house beers from their own Spitting Feathers Brewery. The food is inventive and freshly prepared.
