Good pub for a Wetherspoons, food was cheap, quick and what you would expect. Very child friendly and the kids loved it. Will be back.

We are not in a central London/centre of a main town so think we need a different approach. Standing at the bar here used to be allowed - it is a large bar... More

I love this bar , great my local, People talk and its the heart of the community , a great little community corner and now , you can not stand at the bar . Bit crazy as pubs need local people. Great food and staff also brilliant manager . So give us the corner back. 😂
