The Kings Head & Bell
Beautifully renovated pub that has retained it's "heart of the community" atmosphere; the favourite haunt of lots of community groups and meeting place for anyone trying to organise anything in the town - thanks Steve for letting us use all the nooks and crannies around the pub as mini-meeting rooms! Brilliant atmosphere - catch them on a night when the mountain bikers have just got back from a ride and the folk musicians are jamming for a real taste of the most atmosphere you can get without actually being a student any more. Munchy food that goes nicely with the real ales. Lovely private courtyard that stays pretty warm and sheltered even on a cooler evening.
