Came here last year when it sorely needed renovating and the beer was ok. A year later, renovations and decorations completed and now it is a nice, comfy traditional pub, shame that the beer was still only ok. Get better beer in my local Wetherspoons....More

Came here on a recommendation... after checking the webpage ... for their Whiskey. Apparently the Menu based on 150 Whiskey is outdated... we still had a great selection at great prices- but not all selection expected was available. Looked like a great beer place though.

Have to say we were excited to fi d this ale House but the experience left a lot to be desired. Rude staff who appear to be incapable of guageing who is next to be served. Wouldn't recommend and one to avoid

I do like the cosy feel of this pub. It's a pub you can relax in and enjoy good beer. Always a good selection of ales and spirits.
