“Good old-fashioned”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 via mobile

If there was ever a perfect representation of a British residential pub, this is it. Dee runs a sharp ship - beer's excellent, food's available 'till there's none left!'. No loud music, friendly local atmosphere, quiz nights once a week. Excellent web site tells you the rest. Lovely small table area out the front to catch the last of the sun in the evening. Wonderful interior crammed full of brasses, salt and pepper pots and other knick-knacks.

“A Proper Pub!”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

Could not be more comfortable and homely, with my favourite cider always available, a very matey feel to the whole place. Delighted with the live entertainment (McGoozer) a couple weeks ago, couldn't do better.

But please, someone, for the love of all that is holy, the loo needs to be bleached down and aired out, anyone within six yards of the men's room door was choking on the fumes from what smelled like an eternity of urine-based ammonia.

Won't stop me returning, but will definitely sit nearer to the front of house! ;-)

“Good proper pub!”
Reviewed 12 January 2013 via mobile

Always a good pint and great home cooked pub food - especially when they have bread pudding on! Fantastic value and in the summer the garden is very pleasant.
