We had the mixed platter. Nice choice of meat and cheese, biscuits and bread. Enough to share for three. Beer was great as usual and the choice was large. It’s a nice treat.

What a brilliant place to have an early evening drink of real ale or local gin. Loved the atmosphere and especially the trivial pursuit questions on the table. This place is very different and well worth a visit
