This traditional, friendly, multi-roomed local is believed to be New Brighton's oldest as well as highest pub. It has a conservatory extension where good value home-cooked food is served daily. The handpumps are in the main bar area, with four varying guest ales on offer from a mixture of national and micro-breweries. Two popular annual beer festivals are hosted in the rear garden. Live folk music plays regularly here. Local CAMRA Pub of the Year 2009.
