This is my local (although it isn't the pub nearest my home). Friendly welcoming atmosphere, all sports, pool, darts and a jukebox! A great place to go for a few drinks and a good laugh.

It's intimidating for anyone to be in there, regular trouble and fights. Not the sort of place you would want to take anyone to!

The White Heather does cater for those who know from which side you pass the Port after dinner. It is what it wants to be a basic English pub with Sky Sports, juke box etc. It makes a change from the Nightjar and I have...More
