A good old-fashioned English pub, and a pleasant spot to while away an evening…

Staff really friendly. Friday night open mic was brilliant. So unexpected and performers from all over. No silly stuff.

A clear focus on beer and a cosy atmosphere makes this one of the few surviving real pubs. Definitely worth a visit.

We spent a very pleasant couple of hours here, drinking well kept ale and listening to the eclectic jukebox. No pretensions to being anything other than a pub, and all the better for it.

Good selection of real ale on tap. My husband had great fun having halves to work his way through the beer selection.
