A collection of nine historic buildings, our pub dates back to the 16th century. The Grade II listed building was being used as an inn by 1703, making it one of the oldest pubs in the city.
Look out for the rock with four steps in our medieval courtyard. Known as a mounting stone, this was used to help passengers board their stagecoaches.
In 1781, the world’s tallest man, Mr O’Brian, who was eight feet seven inches tall, was exhibited at the pub with the landlord charging visitors a shilling to look at “the Irish Giant”.
Rumour also has it that we’re haunted by a group of Catholics who were planning to escape to France. They’ve been known to rearrange the chairs into a circle and relight the fire when we’re closed at night, but don’t worry, we’re sure they won’t disturb you during your visit…
