I ate on a monday lunchtime, the pub wasn't overly busy but you can tell it's a regulars pub as there was lots of laughter. Nice when travelling on your own for business. I was quite taken back by the decor, could do with a...More

Great pub, superb real ale, clean, tidy and always a friendly welcome. When the tv is on its mot overwhelming, its spot on. Always a venue I visit when I am in town, food is ok too.

Very friendly and a proper 'local', lots of regulars. Good German food (and schnapps!) and in winter they do mulled wine with a shot of Amaretto and a piece of Stollen (can't be beaten on a cold day!). Can get very busy during sports events,...More
