Having travelled down from Scotland for the Grand National Festival and being a real ale fan I made this my pub of choice on three occasions. Arriving rather leg-weary after a day at the races plus a decent walk down to the Raven I was soon refreshed for the walk back to my accommodation. Although very busy I was very... More

This is a cracking pub ,a large L shaped room with booth seating,your typical Wetherspoon decor and furnishings and plenty of seating options but then again they need plenty of... More

Food is pretty great plus the selection of drinks makes this place worth coming back to. There are other great pubs around here, but they just don't offer the selection or the prices The Raven does.
