Beautiful small old pub in good location near the station. Good choice of very well kept beers and immaculate glassware. Very traditional pub with lots of unspoilt features and friendly staff :)

This is my sort of pub. Small and full of character. Friendly landlord and locals. Good selection of beer and cider. Open 'til 12 on a Sunday night. What's not to like??

Popped in for a quick G&T , it’s a gorgeous little one room bar with a little snug at the back that’s like the interior of a tram car. I’m always amazed these Victorian interiors survive especially as fashions change over the years. You should...More

Popped in for a quiet pint and found a good choice of beer and a unique heritage interior. This is a rare survival of a Victorian bar and snug, making for excellent surroundings to enjoy a pint of Timothy Taylor’s.

What a treasure! My colleague and I discovered this pub by accident on a recent business trip to Bristol and spent two enjoyable evenings chatting there. It's a nice quite pub midweek for a good pint (excellent doom bar!) We will definitely be going back.

You'll love this quaint little bar. We called in for a pint just to wet the whistle and found that it is quaint, traditionally styled place where the landlord runs his pub with great pride. Highly recommended.
