Great little traditional British pub, good choice of beers at a reasonable price. Looks like a proper pub from the outside, looks like a proper pub on the inside and it is a proper pub, beer, food, atmosphere, staff, conversation and locals.

Great selection of real ales. Wooden floors. Good atmosphere. Worth a look! Traditional pub where little has really changed in a long while. Outside rear yard as well as on-street drinking. Something for everyone.
