Popped in for a drink when in holiday. Pub was busy and good atmosphere. Staff were busy but friendly and served quickly. The gins were served with fresh fruit - yummy. No seating outside except in the smoking area which was not great but otherwise...More

Called in for a drink after it was recommended by a local couple. Service was slow although the bar wasn't busy. Tables had not been cleared and the staff appeared not to notice.

Was pleasantly surprised to find that the whey Pat had been refurbished. The outlet is nicely decorated, smart but classy. Popped in to find 4/5 ales on, 2 of which where local from Eden mill. Also they do Camra discount.

Very friendly pub with good food. Nice back room for watching sports. We wanted to watch the Open Tournament on Sunday and our apt didn't have Sky Cable. Had very good nachos and fish and chips.
