We visited at lunchtime on 01/08/15 but the door of the pub remained firmly closed. No notice on the door to say what was happening, although a local we spoke to seemed to think "they are moving". Disappointing.

This is certainly not a plastic and manufactured chain pub experience and pubs like this are getting harder to find. Don't expect a standard duplicated fake traditional interior, this is the real thing. With real fires in both bars and its own Crown Ale brewed...More

We arrived without reservations for Sunday lunch. It was busy but tables were rearranged for us (part of 6) and we were served in a friendly and efficient manner. Sunday roast was excellent. Great value and atmosphere. Will go here again.
