“Great British Pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

Great atmosphere, great beer, great staff. Only one downside poor quality wine.Why do great pubs let themselves down by selling cheap quality wines?

“Great pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

What more can you want from this fantastic real ale pub?

Amazing beer with a wide selection, along with magnificent pork pies.
Hot food would be nice here, but maybe it would spoil it as a great drinking pub.

“Real ale in a traditional pub:)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

This is a good local pub with a choice of traditional ales.
It was very quite when we called but it was early on a Sunday lunchtime.
We were made to feel welcome and enjoyed our visit.
The choice of beer was very good and they hold regular beer festivals, so will be going again.

“Nice pub - complete with food from local take-away!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

After a canal holiday, 12 of us went here yesterday evening; they weren't doing food, so the landlord produced some local takeaway menus; we rang with our order, and the food was delivered to the pub; the landlord happily provided plates and cutlery -- after all, it was in his interest to keep us there, as we spent the whole evening happily trying the wide selection of real ales!
