“Like stepping back in time,”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

No TV, No Music, No fizzy lager, No alcopops.

This is a proper old-fashioned pub, with a good choice of Ales from St Peter's Brewery.

They do very good scotch eggs also! Make sure to get there early as this place gets amazingly busy, or you'll probably end up drinking outside on the street with the other patrons.

“Rude barman”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

Beautiful pub, lovely beers, not very comfortable as not enough seating space (and it was Mon night...), with the worst, most unfriendly, rude, grumpy, moody barman...

“If someone wants to go to a "real" British pub, bring them here”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

With real ales, great lunches and friendly staff, this is a great little place. It's got bucket loads of character and when it gets busy, bucket loads of atmosphere too. The small bar is tiny but the staff know their craft and you get served quicker than you might expect. Really worth checking out.

“Cute lil gem”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

When I am in the area it is my secret pleasure to I pop in; the rose is cold and there is nice selection of micro-ciders/ales on tap. This place is intimate - i wish this were my local; it's like kind of place that you know people have sat in the little corner for centuries to enjoy the company of friends. Marginally bigger than wardrobe with dozen table -- this is magical cosy.

PS Great pork sandwiches!
