Cozy place woth large selection of beers, also locals. They also have plenty of board games and the staff is really warm for customers. Come alone, with a friend or group of them, it's a great place to spend time. They also play good music, a lot of older british classics.

Nice and peaceful pub just little of hassle, time capsule what seems to stucked to 60's.
Very relaxed atmosphere, local newspapers. Good selection of imported beers and ciders, domestic also. Friendly staff with good (native) english. Good place to pop in and enjoy refreshments

We did some shopping and on our way home we stopped here for drinks. It was in the middle of the day, here and there were some people, talking or just reading a book. The decoration dates back to 1950-70 and it makes this place different from the others. The selection of drinks is good.

Cozy place, not too small, but not too spacious either. Great place for beer and cider lovers! Every time I was there, the atmosphere was quite relaxed, and the service was excellent. The bar tender spoke perfect English (when explaining all about the ciders they offered). We got free snacks, too! Also there are several board games free to use. Come there with friends for a chat or alone for a coffee and a newspaper.
