Great pub. Had a few drinks in here both sat and Sunday night. Nice atmosphere. Quieter than usual with it being January but serves good fun and great snack selection. Dog friendly. Have a selection of board games also.

Great food and a good selection of ales. Always a friendly welcome and a nice roaring coal fire to sit beside. Right in the centre of town. Highly recommended.
