This is mainly a young persons’ pub in the middle of town. The single large bar room, frequently busy and noisy, has four handpumps on display but only two in operation most times, on which the changing guest ales appear. The open central walkway (good also for wheelchairs) from the front door is slate-paved, with both the bar on the left and and the seating area to the right sunken to a slightly lower level. The back door leads onto a decked area with steps down to an enclosed, surprisingly long old and rather uneven cobbled area with tables and the odd palm tree. Regular disco, karaoke or live bands appear. Food is available Monday to Thursday, no food Fri-Sun. The pub was named for some years after Bob Fitzsimmons, a former world boxing champion who lived locally.
