A best pub in town! About ten real ales on and quite a few good tastes. Cosy busy pub and a throw back to the old days. Very friendly atmosphere.

With fond memories we rerun to try the ales. About ten on and we tried three halves. Very nice and Laura always gets out three glasses when we arrive.

Not bad, friendly staff and good atmosphere for an authentic English pub (I presume, not being English). Regularly busy on a late Friday afternoon through to closing time. Has a good patio for sitting outside in summer months (I presume not knowing summer, being Scottish).

Traditional British pub with Hopback beers all in good condition. Quiz night Wednesdays, happy hours on Mondays.

This is a basic locals pub, friendly enough and the real ale is well kept. Not modern in any sense but sometimes that's just what you want from a pub.

Dropped in at the end of our pub crawl to try the beers. Great real ale pub with about 8 ales on. Well kept beer and friendly staff. A must visit.

Just great beer. Wooden settles and friendly bar staff. I wasn't aware of food being served so I wouldn't describe it as a restaurant. The beer's good though!
