I ove to pop in here to enjoy a pint of real cider. Its a very friendly place. The actual pub is a bit run down, a bit grubby. However this is not the reason people visit. Its for the great ales.

Popped in for a couple of pints at lunchtime. Despite there being only a few customers, the bar was clogged with "bar hogs" who have to sit at the bar :( Anyway, that aside, it's a characterful pub. The cask ales we had were excellent...More
