I have been visiting the Elsinore for many years,this is my favourite pub;It is a truly 'locals' pub.The interior has'nt changed over the years (thankfully) the beer,especially the Camerons Strongarm,is always First Rate.The music nights at the weekend are great fun.

We visited this pub both Friday and Saturday to listen to two good live bands. It's a great place to visit after going out for a meal. Great atmosphere and friendly customers.

It hasn't changed in years, but it really doesn't need to, it's a great honest drinkers pub, and that's it's charm. It gets packed to the rafters when live music is on, and full of atmosphere. My other half loves the... More

Small quaint pub, food looked and smelt good, can take dogs in as well, just had drink, old fashioned but looks like a pub used by locals, welcoming to tourists though

Having taken our dog, we found that there were 4-5 others in hiding under various tables and seats, all totally at home there.
