Made a point of going to this little bar. Great place. Nice atmosphere. A nice range of cask ales. Busy and lots of locals. Decor is lovely. Definitely worth a visit.

We were expecting to have some very good beers, but found only regular ones. The atmosphere was not special as well.

A small, clean and friendly micropub with a good selection of real ales and craft beers. It seems popular with locals and tourists, and the quality of beer was top notch.
