It’s great to see a once boarded-up pub back open and flourishing. This independently run gem in the shadow of the city walls is a winner of multiple CAMRA awards and you can see why. The beautifully presented interior (open fires and candlelight of a winter evening), an excellent selection of ales and traditional pub games tick all the right boxes. The Phoenix Inn also hosts regular jazz nights as well as plenty of other events.
