Popped in here after a recommendation from my brother and we weren’t disappointed. Great selection of ales on tap and not your usual ones. Bartender friendly and helpful and a great relaxed environment. We will return

This place has had so many (well-deserved) positive reviews it may not be worth adding another one, but it may be reassuring to hear that the standards are unwavering. The coffin-like shape, the stained glass, the beer quality, the subdued music, and, oh my days,...More

This pub hasn't changed for over 35 years to my knowledge, and probably for longer than that. Good beer and great staff. Vynil records played on an old fashioned record player too!

Recommended by a friend. Although narrow and somewhat cramped, this pub really has atmosphere. Loved the old gramaphone and naval caps. Drinks reasonably priced. Well worth a visit!
