The Old Transporter is an excellent place to drink which sells a range of cask beers, keg warsteiner lager, shipyard ale and Guinness and still coders. A fantastic place to meet new people and has two thriving darts teams

Modest pub but a great selection of beers and nice friendly owners. Warsteiner on tap is highly recommended.

We frequent this venue regularly as they have a varied and regularly changing selection of real ales on gravity from the casks as well as ciders from boxed bags which are nice too. The Warsteiner on draught is by far the best I have tasted...More

Although very small the place tries to cater for all. Recently hosted a gin festival and was excellently done. Also has live music at weekends. Lots of local beers but cater for wine drinkers as well. Lovely atmosphere.
