Lovely looking pub.That's where my praise ends.The bitter was awful,loud dance 'music'blasting away,on the tv screen.No live football on offer. Very uninviting place,considering how close to the amazing railway station it is. The gent's toilet were disgusting & had'nt been cleaned properly or tidied,for sometime.

Tried to order food at 15:55 on a Bank Holiday Saturday and told they have stopped serving food (Menu said 10-16). No idea why they would stop serving so early. I won't be bothering again.
