What a charming little pub.You just have to pop in for yourself to see this museum pub, full of memorabilia of years gone by. Eddie behind the bar was a star, kept us amused while serving a fantastic pint of Guinness. Can`t wait to return

Have visited this place a few times. It is a great place for a beer after a day walking or cycling in the surrounding area. Fab decor.
