“Want to watch the rugby?”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

If you want to watch the rugby you have come to the right place. If you want to watch the football, make there isn't a rugby match on. Don't go if you are allergic to dogs. Surprisingly really nice beer garden out back once you get past the buildings.

“Sunday Roast ”
Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

The place is quaint and friendly but the Sunday roast was huge and very salty and not very enjoyable. It was also quite expensive for a Sunday Roast. Lovely for a drink but I wouldn't recommend the food.

“A pint, a packet of crisps and a toastie for £6.50!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Most definitely not a restaurant but something my son calls 'an old man's pub'. It's barely changed in twenty years – and that's a compliment! This friendly and shabby place is the antidote to theme pubs and gastropubs.

If you want a choice of reasonably priced real ale and a lunchtime basic (and I mean basic) toastie, this is the place to go – and you can enjoy a chat with the regulars.

Judge it for what it is and you will not be disappointed. Not a place for the trendy set.
