Good Guinness pull at this pub. The food looks like it is good, but we did not partake. Staff were friendly. Place was clean (and dusted) . Rare for these old pubs.

The place is consistently busy, but we could still get a table. I was introduced to Brie Pizza, something I wish I could get back in the USA. Good service, very friendly people!

The pub is nice and staff is great. Unfortunately food is not the best and portion are quite small. Recommended for a pint, not a lunch.

No, didn't eat there, but there WAS live music just outside. We spent a "quality" couple of hours here, chatting with whomever was unlucky enough to be close by, and hmmmm, maybe had another pint or two. Very friendly place, people, and overall feeling. Thanks!

Had a family lunch here. They have a decent kids menu. Quite traditional food. Fish chips were good. My wife has a fish pie which was tasty. It’s a busy place which is a good sign. Price was mid range. Service was friendly and timely.
