We stopped off here for a quick drink. This pub is hidden away from the Main Street so isn't as busy and it was lovely to have a quiet drink away from the hustle and bustle. Friendly staff and a nice pint

Thanks very much for taking time to place a review. Obviously the beer is a bit stronger than you are used to.the fact that you mentioned we welcome dogs twice kind of gives the game away. Maybe you should just stick to playing golf with...More
