All too often, the words “student pub” are enough to send any real drinker running in search of sanctuary in a better place, that serves better beer and stocks pork scratchings. Fortunately, the Jonno does both of these things perfectly well.

On the bar you’ll find four real ales on rotation and some decent ciders. And being just across the road from the Queens Medical Centre, the medical students here can book you into A&E should you fall over.

The pub was taken over in Spring 2018 by new tenants but it’s manged to keep its no nonsense, welcoming approach. There’s a mahoosive beer garden out the back.


Music? Monthly acoustic music nights advertised, occasional other events.

Food? A bar menu of pub favourites featuring burgers, light bites, sanwiches and Sunday roasts. And good pork scratchings.

People? A student crowd mixes with older ale lovers.

Opinion? The Jonno has established itself for years as a watering hole for weary medics. But it’s also well worth the trip from town to stampede the convivial atmosphere.
