Used to be Rosie O'Grady's on Park End St. Now owned by Marston's brewery, and called The Duke's Cut.

Table service and four real ales.

Opened on 13th June 2009 - a great refurb job and a cracking pub!

Kake, Feb 2012: Two sides to this pub, with the bar in the middle offering a view through from one to the other photo. Four handpumps on each side, today offering Brakspear Oxford Gold, Marston's "Single Hop" Galaxy (1.65/half), Wytchwood Hobgoblin, and Ringwood Best. Cask Marque accreditation displayed on the pump clips. I ordered and paid at the bar, so the abovementioned table service seems not to be mandatory. The "snug" bar photo (on the right as you go in) has a wood fire (not in action on this warm-enough Spring day), a large flatscreen (this afternoon, showing sport with the sound on), an upright piano, a wooden unpadded armchair. two large sofas flanking a low coffee table, a number of barstools, and a single round table with four upright chairs. The floorboards are exposed and varnished, and the walls are panelled below and papered above. A poster advertises live music on Friday evening. Three other customers in this side when I arrived around 3:30pm on a Friday afternoon. There's also some outdoor seating along the side of the pub, overlooking the canal.

Accessibility: A step to get in, and two more steps to get to the loos. Ladies' has tiny cubicles with heavy doors.
