I guess one of the things that separates old fogeys like me from young fogeys is that I tend to like pubs for what they don't do, not what they do do. So, I like pubs that don't do music as the main noise source;...More

Proper British Pub with good value home cooked food (Bar & Kids menu + Specials-Boards) with a good sellection of Ales and Wines etc' We welcome well-behaved children, but ask parents & guardians to keep them under control and out of Bar areas. Dogs are allowed in the Public bar and Garden and must be kept on a short lead at all times. Quiz night is every Tuesday with a Half-price Menu for Quizzers (Great Value).We have a well-kept enclosed Garden with plenty of seating and a Heated Smokers area, We do not open lunchtimes during the week, but the pub is available for private functions with a giant screen projector and Buffet Menus available.
