Real fire, real beer & real people. great place to enjoy a few pints and chat to nice people. Dogs welcome to. Food was okay, homemade pie, not the best put this isn't what this pub is about. it's the atmosphere that makes it.

It is nearly always packed in this pub, and for good reason. They serve good food in huge portions. Me and my brother had cycled from Threshfield, and were very hungry. We both ordered the Cumberland sausage served with two duck eggs, chips and beans....More
