Went in with friends just because it is close to the railway station. I liked it. The barmaid was friendly and the beer OK. It is a fairly basic pub, but that is OK. I would go again if I was in the area.

Absolutely glorious pub. It has everything you could possibly want from a pub and more. The landlord is exceptional, ale is ale, Stella is Stella and there is a pool table cover.
