This is a little gem of a pub, which my wife and I discovered on our wedding anniversary break. Although we didn't stay here, it was the perfect retreat on a chilly afternoon to enjoy a few drinks by the heat of the log fire. The traditional decor, laid back, warm and inviting atmosphere and friendly chatty staff, provide the essential ingredients for a winning recipe. The biggest delight for me was the chance to quench my thirst with a few pints of 100% vegan ale from the local Hastings Brewery. Despite the cold, I suddenly felt like I had trekked across the desert, so these ales for me were particularly refreshing, satisfying and exceedingly quaffable, especially the Pale Ale! Well done to all the staff for making this watering hole an old favourite in the old town!
