Wish I had tried it earlier. Nice buzz, run by friendly people. Girls enjoyed their G&Ts, the the beers weren't too bad either. A great selection of locally produced beers on offer.

Came across this very small pub by chance, its a lovely place, seems to be very popular with locals and tourists alike, to make it special for me was the great selection of ales. I will certainly return when back in the area.
