Just had one drink in here over the weekend and there was no atmosphere at all so we headed home. It's a lovely pub but it would do with music or something at the weekends to liven it up a bit.

This pub is well overdue being refurbished, and could also do with a deep clean. The food is OK, but nothing special. Overall, not really impressed.

We specifically went to this place to have O Hara Red ale, which was very nice. The Guinness was great. We sat outside and had fish cake and chips, which were great.

Hadn't visited in a while and was happy to go back for a drink on Friday. It's a beautiful old fashioned pub with lovely friendly staff. We didn't have food but plenty of people around us were eating and it all looked great.
