I love this pub, it's a proper, traditional, adult pub, with knowledgeable staff serving a great selection of real ales as well as some fantastic gins. Join to Facebook group to see the current selection of ales being served.

We had been told to visit the Brown Cow - so we did. Whilst it was a Saturday evening, we did find a table for the five of us. Turning to the real ale, an excellent choice. Also, a gin menu. See you soon
