Great place to stop for a quirky drink. Barman made a real effort with us and great selection of beers. Didn't eat but other people's food looked nice. Was very busy but made huge effort to accommodate us.

It's busy, so stop by on the early side. I had the yorkshire platter - which was good. My husband had the meat pie - which was excellent. Great beers available as well. Fun atmosphere.

We stock over 700 ales and are very competitive on price due to the volume we buy. Pop in and try some beers in the pub

This is a medieval ale house and specialist beer merchant/store. It is simply amazing, the quirky food is excellent - robust cheeseboards , pies, stews, best locally sourced ingredients and has a 5 start rating from hygiene standards. They also have some amazing holiday apartments, check out their website
