Great pub where if you ask for food you will told you can have crisps! Traditional pub for real ale drinkers with truly great beer called Mischief. Freindly crowd with one or two eccentric locals. Adds to the flavour. Excellent staff

CAMRA pub with 8 cask ales from Monty's brewery and 10 real ciders. Slight functional and well worn but does serve a good pint. Also the local pool league happens here.

Perfect lunch time stop. Great ciders 1/3 pints of great ciders. No wonder this pub has won awards. No food but will let you eat food from local takeaways
