Great pub, friendly staff, excellent selection of regularly changing ales that are well kept. Usually busy whenever we visit but that's to be expected.

Loved it. A wonderful oasis of pubby calm. Excellent beer, friendly knowledgable staff, a decent crowd. If they did food it'd be perfect. This is how pubs should be.

A gem of a place with great real ales and a wonderful friendly atmosphere. We always head for here before and after going for a meal in town. Very reasonable prices too!
