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.

Come here quite regularly to try any new whiskeys they may have as Ben really knows what he is on about! He encourages me to drink different ones from around the world. I love his work ethic too. He's a keeper
