Stopped in for a quick beer or two. Sat inside as the beer garden full of smokers! Nice to sup a pint and watch the world go by on the street.

Haven't been in here for ages, but the atmosphere was great and yet another hidden gem traditional english pub. Friendly staff and friendly locals. Pop in for a pint when you're in town.

A lovely little pub, well worn but friendly. Like most really old pubs its a bit quirky but a pie and a pint of good real ale makes up for any shortcomings. As others have posted pics here I would urge any visitors to view...More
