A friendly single-roomed old pub, probably converted from early 19th century weavers cottages, and named after an act in the circus that used to overwinter in this block. It has a light, clean interior with tartan upholstered bench seating and stools, and dark laminate floor around a small semi-circular bar. Entered by steps from the street so may prove difficult for disabled. A tiny, heated outdoor yard at the rear can seat two people. Certainly one of the smallest pubs in the city. Can get busy on match days, when space is at a premium. On Mondays you get 50p off all cask ales. CAMRA discount of 10%.
