Smelly pub, due to the big panting dog that Sat on the stools and sofas. The same dog was fed with a bone while we were there, which it proceeded to chomp on the sofa. Not nice. Beer was ok but we all felt a...More

This was my third visit. NB my previous 2* review appears to have been removed. The female serving has a rotten attitude that should exempt her from working in the service industry. Stinks of dog and the landlady's attitude. My glass was cleaned on her...More

We stumbled across this gem on our mission to find fish and chips. It was freezing outside and our glasses misted up immediately we went in. The bar maid offered us both tissues! Sadly, we only had time for one drink. My beer came from...More

This place is all about the cask ales and real cider. Basically a small shop which has been converted into a basic one room bar. Some comments have been made about the landlady but I think these are unfair, she has a very dry sense...More

We have a local micro pub so looked forward to giving this one a try. The man who served us was friendly as so were other customers. We didn't mind the dogs themselves but the smell....it was overpowering. A woman serving someone a beer, wiped...More
