Popped in for a glass of wine. No customers, No choice of wine, No question of what size we would like, 250ml glasses automatically poured.No atmosphere. Such a shame as the building is wonderful and if managed properly could be a gold mine.

This pub is set away from the busy high street and isn't usually very busy. It has a good choice of tap and bottled beers and a nice beer garden. It's nice to hangout with friends and I would recommend it.

Great old style pub that I used to drink in for many years. Ruining by drug filled idiots who think they can run the world. Staff are great

Visited this dive last night to discover they had no ales to sell. An English pub with no ales?? So the kindly bar maid offered me an Amstel Lager instead. She managed just under half a pint and ran out. A joke pub.
