From the outside this looks like a quaint old pub but inside it's rocking! Had a brilliant night with a super band playing...my ears are still buzzing 😍. Staff are super friendly and the other clientele somewhat alternative but that's great too. Will return!

Really like this old pub. Nice place to relax on a midweek lunchtime. Definitely a bikers pub and the rock music playing made for decent atmosphere. Not sure I'd spend an evening here, but a few at lunchtime, I will return

New owners have been there for 7 months. The staff are friendly, the real ales are great and the bands are awesome.

Came here for a quick lunchtime drink. Service is good, beer is reasonably priced and there is a standard pub menu on offer. Heavy metal music was playing which is good for my tastes. Small beer garden outside. Toilets leave a lot to be desired....More
