See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Large red brick terrace pub immediately across the historic Old Dee Bridge. Heavily altered, modernised and slightly extended it is now a glass–fronted, well-lit one-room bar with some exposed brick, wood and slate floors. Subtly partitioned, it is pleasantly and simply furnished throughout including a cosy series of tables and chairs around a large fire. Decor consists of unusual nautical themed lighting, bric-a-brac (including a large abacus) of varying quirkiness and, most noticeably in the stairwell, framed prints of local historic relevance. The similarly furnished upstairs restaurant includes a glazed area overlooking Edgar's Field public park.
