Colpitts Hotel is a wedge-shaped building on a street corner. It is a Sam Smiths pub and has their Old Brewery Bitter on handpull. The real draw here is the unadorned interior, which is a real throwback. The pub was fairly busy with a crowd that seemed to be mainly students and lecturers. The ale selection may be pretty ordinary. But it's worth going here to see how pubs used to be.

I was a student at Hild Bede college in Durham, and used to go there to the poetry readings. A fantastic old fashioned pub. I met an old fellow from Durham in Clun youth hostel several years ago, and he said it hadn't changed in the 50 years he'd been going there. Lovely pint of Sam Smith's bitter.

I think this remains a family concern, regular staff with dry sense of humour. Sam Smiths beers at Sam Smiths prices, always exceptionally well kept and only £1.80 a pint for OB. A cracking pub, worth the trip out of the main town, about 10 minutes walk.

A year since my last visit. Had get early bus home otherwise I'd of been legless with this superb pint of OB. Three good pints at £1-80 a pint.
