Popped in for a drink at tea time on a snowy Wednesday evening in January. The pub was busy with a variety of people in suits and casual gear. Friendly atmosphere and an excellent pint of well kept Timothy Taylor’s Landlord.

Nice pub with lots of seating areas and good juke box. A great pint of Timmy Taylors on tap with a good range of spirits. A real local pub and is in the middle of a number of real ale pubs... love it.
