The main attraction here for me was the range of real ciders available. Some very good choices are usually available. Food here is usually very good. A decent pie and mash can be had, and the flavours vary regularly to give you a variety on each visit. Definitely worth a visit. It can be quite noisy when they have the...

We wandered into The Brewery Tap for a quick coffee and stayed for a beer and a pizza. A reasonable range of beers and some good ciders. We shared a hot and spicy sitting at the bar and it was delicious. Friendly staff and comfortable surroundings.

We were just planning to go for a drink and move to another place for food. The beer was great and they had some unusual beers from local breweries. They also have a fabulous list of gins and the recommended tonics to go with them. Presentation was excellent with raspberries or blackberries depending on which gin was chosen. We also...

I really like this quirky little pub it has a lovely outdoor seating area and nice decor. We have only had drinks here so cannot comment on the food however the wine and beer is good! Looking at the menu and the food I have seen I would happily eat here.

We stayed for one night as we were going for one day to the Standon Calling festival. I contacted the manager, Nigel, before our stay to ask for recommendations of local cab firms as the Standon organisers were proposing extortionate prices. When I explained this to Nigel, he straight away offered to give us a lift to the festival and...

I'm probably a bit biased as I live very close, but I'm honest too. This place has changed so much since the new owners took over. It so friendly and has a great atmosphere and is almost always busy. The staff are really friendly and fast to serve you.
