Very sociable centre of the town, classic old pub visit. All ages and friendly service the norm! Great vibe any time of day. Must visit.

We popped in for pre - dinner drinks and went back for a night cap. The guys behind the bar were very friendly and even entertained my twin boys.

Food was nice. Service was good. One thing that was not nice was the whole place smelling of cigarette smoke. It would of been much nicer if there was a no smoke area inside.

Decent pub with a good range of draft beers at reasonable prices. Can't comment on the food as we didn't have any but it did look good.
