Great selection of real ales. Wooden floors. Good atmosphere. Worth a look! Traditional pub where little has really changed in a long while. Outside rear yard as well as on-street drinking. Something for everyone.

In our opinion the recommendation stood up well. This is a lovely pub, full of atmosphere, and the welcome we received as just ordinary customers was warm and friendly. If you come up from the 'country' as we did, then prices do appear adventurous, but...More
