We're one of the smallest, friendliest pubs around! Serving a wide range of Badger ales, we've always got the guest seasonal ale on tap. Add in a range of bar snacks, soft drinks, lagers and ciders and you've got the perfect destination......

Absolutely fantastic. Nothing else can describe the night. Wish I'd gotten in earlier. Never Mind the Bongos were brilliant. And the staff and customers were a pleasure to spend the night with.

Very "snooty" definitely a "locals only" atmosphere in there....a table reserved for the pub cat?! Unhygienic to say the least, and if you dare to remove the animal or complain about it you will not get a very good reception!!
