This pub has been nicely decorated, with an open fire and with a welcoming landlord. It should be lovely but is spoilt by some really vulgar and actually quite disgusting talk from locals, on every occasion I have visited. It can perhaps be expected of youngsters and partly excused, but not when it is coming from middle aged men. The staff do not seem to do much about this, if anything.
What was worse, was a recent visit when one of the locals actually had a rat in the pub! He had it in his coat pocket and other drinkers did not even seem to realise this. He then allowed it to come out and climb all over himself, while he was standing at the bar and in full view of staff. People dine at this pub and it is not what you expect to see or experience on a night out in what should be a cosy and enjoyable evening in the pub. I thought that was horrendous. Some pubs don't even allow dogs, this one allows rats! If you like rats, it probably would be perfect, but not for me.
