I visited this pub with a group of colleagues after a Christmas lunch. As with another reviewer, we were asked to stop swearing. Fair enough, we toned it down as requested. But we were also told off for leaving empty glasses on our table, sitting in front of the fire and therefore apparently blocking the heat, messing up some cushions on a bench, and putting a chair in a different place to where it is normally kept.
All the regulars clearly treat this place like an extension of their living room. That's fine, but if it is somebody's living room you don't expect to have to pay for the drinks!
Finally, I have never known another pub which puts up signs saying 'Private Party' just because they don't want more people in there.
In a word, avoid!
