We only stayed for drinks after being disappointed with the top house pub, but the staff were lovely, the atmosphere was great, go there for food as that looked amazing too!

Had a wonderful time over a few local ales in this warm friendly pub. People were friendly and engaging, and the steak and ale pie was an ample serving well presented. You'll love this wonderful old pub but don't bump your head on the ceiling!
