From the outside of the pub you think you're going in to an oldy-worldy, quaint British pub as it is adorned with lovely hanging baskets and has the traditional black oak beams and white facade...a lovely looking pub........until you go inside!
Dark, dingy and the beer crusted carpet did not appeal to us, however we ordered some drinks (which came with very polite and efficient service) and sat outside in the courtyard.
The courtyard is lovely and was bathed in sunshine, the seats were comfortable although thankfully more of the lovely hanging baskets hid the cracking masonry and chipping white paint on the pub exterior.
We were going to order food, however the table next to us had their delivered and it looked less than desirable (standard pub grub, chunky chips and burger fayre)....it put us off ordering looking at the quality and presentation of the food, but as I didn't taste it, I can't comment about the taste quality.
To summerise? if some money was spent on the interior decorations and the presentation of the food, I could see this pub being very popular with the tourists - as it is, I think they're loosing trade from their image.
