Relaxed atmosphere, but with safety measures! Excellent range of changing beers. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We will be back!

What a joy of a micro pub, excellent range of brilliantly served beers, cider too. A beer lovers treasure trove.

Having been a frequent visitor to the crab pot, on numerous occasions, I’ve always experienced good beer and a friendly atmosphere. Unfortunately today having gone to meet my father and nephew I experienced somewhat of the opposite. On arrival I was told that I had to wear a mask, which I was unaware of and asked if I could sit down in the garden, as I had no mask with me, I was told abruptly “ NO IT’s THE LAW ! “ I turned to leave as my father, Who is nearly 80, went to speak with the landlord, as he had not had the same rude welcome and had not been asked to wear a mask or provide any contact details, or he would have warned me when arranging to meet. The landlord then appeared to ignore the fact my father was asking if we could move to a table in the garden, in favour of wagging his finger re-iterating... ITS THE LAW ! Very disappointing, Quietly advising customers of the law politely would have been less embarrassing and gone a long way to avoid this negative review !

I am sorry you too were upset we were complying with the law and protecting customers when you entered the pub without wearing a mask . It had been Law for 4 days and well publicised Nationally and on a poster displayed on the front door.

We visited here in mid September and spent an enjoyable hour or so drinking well-kept ale and a nice bottle of wine (not in the same glass!) The staff were friendly and knowledgeable as were the locals we chatted to (at a safe distance). There is seating inside and outside but it is quite a small area so it's best to get there early. A really nice early evening.

We managed to get a table here and sat outside. It’s always busy! What a little treasure. Great place with a range of different beers and the Pimms went down well too! The staff were very attentive and cheerful. Highly recommend
