We come here for a few drinks every now and again. It's a typical British pub, lots of different seats, and a big variety of drinks including real ales.

This is a nice pub serving a good selection of real ales at the going price.The staff were friendly. To me it is just another pub serving a good selection of real ale along with the other usual drinks. Meals and snacks are also available.

Lunch with my brother, lovely Fish and Chips. Chips are wonderful. Nice selection of Ciders to accompany lunch. I am told the ciders change regularly so a continuous nice choice. Very surprised at the menu selection. Old fashioned pub with great food choices.
