Can't tell you about the food, but can tell you the beer was stunning. Classic pint Bass tapped straight from the barrel. Then a pint of even more local Joules. Beer heaven in this special beer town.

Historic cosy pub. Good friendly service. Very well kept ales, Joules brewery mainly. Unpretentious. Don't know if food offered but definitely enjoyed the Joules Blonde beer.
