Conversion of part of a historic city-centre hotel opposite the cathedral. Once two separate hotels, combined in 1910, the pub occupies the lower floor of what was the Anchor. This Wetherspoons venue is popular with young and old alike and is nearly always busy. The open plan interior retains attractive moulded plaster ceilings in the front part. There is also a small courtyard to the rear for smoking and outdoor drinking.
