Almost qualifying as a travel bookstore as well as a bar, Noble Fir’s notoriously strong ales (up to 14% ABV) might fill you with enough courage to plan a hair-raising trip to the deepest Amazon (the jungle not the dot com), or somewhere equally exotic.

The bright, laid-back bar has a corner nook given over to travel books and maps with packing cases on which to rest your drinks. Snuggle down, drink.....and dream!
