Nice pub, quiet and cozy atmosphere and friendly staff. Tap selection is just the usual, would like to see more craft beers served on tap. Some live music would definitely live up the place.

How come the staff can ban customers off their pub property even thoa the customers brought drinks in the bar and not in the off licenses which they don't have?

We were only there for a half a hour and only had a pint. And we brought two cans of redbull and 2 packets of crisps at the bar. We weren't misbehaving at all. We were there for a pint then go to a concert.#whwhuges
