This Wetherspoon's Lloyds No 1 bar is named after a celebrated 19th-century editor of the local newspaper who became one of the most influential writers of his age but drowned on the ill-fated Titanic. Popular with a mixed clientele, it offers up to three guest beers sold at value for money prices, mainly from local breweries.
