Went to this cozy pub after a day of conferencing. I had 1 of THREE ciders on tap, and my husband had a lovely ale. This place is amazing. One of the ciders was a cask. And all so reasonably priced!

The pub is fine but the barman is obviously in the wrong job, his bad manners and rudeness even seemed to shock the rest of the staff. Not the attitude required in a service role. A good selection of beers and a good place to...More
