Large atmospheric retro pub. Central horseshoe-shaped bar and old-style furniture. Some nice tiling and wood panelling. Retro radios, televisions and model ships around the walls. A good range of real ales. I liked my visit.

Popped in here for a drink last night. Atmosphere was good. Drinks good but the female member of staff who served us was really sullen and curt with us. Would return but will avoid being served by her. Good outside area if weather fine.
