Popped in for a couple of drinks. Good range of ales and a wonderful atmosphere although a little spooky!! Definitely worth a visit, the bar area is small but loads of character. Would certainly recommend.

Great Beer, Tasty Food and Lovely Rooms. Had a lovely stay here and grew very fond of the ‘regular’ at the bar. He looks like he may have been there for quite some time but I promise you won’t wait that long.
