I was down here on business from Birmingham and I had researched this place prior to coming down. Thought I died and gone to heaven the beer is like an angel pissing on your tongue. Great beer and great characters running the place. 👍🍺

We called in here for a pint on Saturday afternoon with my wife's grown up son, and ended up staying for three! Very good ales (we tried most of them between us) and a great atmosphere. Well worth a visit for all beer lovers.
