With British writer Sally O'Reilly behind its bar taps, The Open Arms unbolted its doors in March 2020 when all other pubs closed theirs. It is a focus for and record of locked-down conviviality. Dive in for a swift sharpener or settle down to a hearty session. Turn the music up or off, avoid anyone you don't like the look of. The place is yours. And better still - everything is on the house.
The pub attracts an unsual stripe of wayward and niche graffiti.
