I always come here before a game at the Amex as it offers (relative) peace, great selection of beers, particularly real ales, and has a wide menu. Service is usually very good and there is almost always somewhere to sit. Reasonably priced

Three South Downs Way walkers were directed here by our excellent B&B Berkeley House in Albion St. We all had wonderful baked sea bass washed down with a variety of local beers. This pub has a friendly atmosphere and allows dogs.

So I’ve only had a burger here but it was pretty boring and bland with a bap that was overly floury and dry, so haven’t been tempted to try much else. The other photos look good but not sure when the were take.
