There is lots of paneling, an open fire in the winter, cast-iron tables and once-plush, endearingly worn, red stools in this charming pub. For a more intimate chat, take a pew in the cozy snug, The Library. Kays was at the forefront of the real ale revival in the 1970s, so if you enjoy a traditional tipple there is a good selection to sample from. As a chaser, try one of the many whiskeys on display, a dram of the Adelphi distillery cask single malt is a revelation. Soak up the liquid with a good value lunch-time bar meal, from the varied menu. Check out the resident oddity, a model that when you insert five pence comes alive and mimics a drunkard's dream.
Brilliant - my fourth visit in a year today over lunchtime and it never disappoints. Great ambience, good food, good conversation, friendly knowledgeable bar staff , regularly updated beers (Old Slapper and Cragrats available today , amongst others!). An interesting and welcoming haven from the hustle and bustle of shopping.
