Lively pub with large undercover area out back full of tvs showing sport. Ale inside pub was excellent but unfortunately not served at rear bar. Did not eat.

We really enjoyed our visit to this warm and welcoming pub on a bitterly cold February night. The staff were friendly and efficient and the beer and wine very enjoyable. Although we weren't there to eat, the food we saw coming out looked very good and seemed to be going down a treat. Some of the regulars were very chatty... More
