We chose this pub for lunch and enjoyed an excellent meal of scampi & chips. We had to wait a little while for the food but that was obviously due to the fact that the food was being cooked to order and was thus perfect when it reached the table. The pub also has an excellent selection of draught beers.... More

Went to the Pub for a beer and lunch. The whole pub had 3 tables occupied and one person to service. There was one lady in the kitchen. We paid and picked up our beer. So far it was good. Then people started to come in and soon there were 45 to 50 people in the pub, still being served... More

Middle ages original ale house specialising in Real Ale and home cooked food. Step back 400 years when you enter and ask Martin what he has to suit your tastes, he is a real ale man himself and knows how to keep that perfect pint!!!! Ask to visit the cellar bar.

Historical building and very friendly staff make this a great place to go especially when the annual Blues Festival is on, (July) Sometimes there's indoor music events even when the Blues Festival is finished. The advertised garden adjoining is not really a garden but a concrete hardstanding with benches to sit and socialise. There are some tall trees to the... More
