Really lovely Old Style Pub, with a good range of Beers and Lagers. Nice meeting place for locals and business people. A "Talky" atmosphere no loud music. Rustic feel about this historic venue.

Wonderful oldy worldy pub with great beers and helpful staff. Menu was varied but in keeping with being a pub and not trying to be a glorified restaurant. The food was tasty. Carry on the good work! We will be back!

Have eaten in here couple of times lately. Landlord is very friendly and helpful. Fantastic inside - beams , real fire. Would recommend. However having had a 'pie of the day' there last night - something went very wrong. Please see picture - this is not a pie!!!

Many years ago this was my local, I wish it could still be. Small main bar with a fireplace and chesterfield is lovely. Ancient old beams and low ceiling in the dining area add to its charm, there is a garden out back for the summer. Right in middle of Castle Street which is a great location. Some local beers...

In January 2016 I wrote a review which had one negative which was the appalling conditions my wife had found when she needed to use the rest room.

I like beer. Six beers, we tried them all. The menu was good. We started... More
