Beer flat, wrong glasses, staff disrespectful. No thought for anyone but themselves. Only there to keep the six locals that get in happy. Golden lion up the road a much better option. Worlds apart! Made us welcome and met all our needs!

A traditional pub but felt like an imposter when we walked through the door. Everyone turned to look at us! Served quickly but staff weren't very friendly- more bothered about chatting to chap at the bar. Had our drink and then left swiftly!

Great selection of beers in this very typical, pub where beer is the focus rather than the pub. Pleasant evening with friends in a place which was full of people drinking no eating. Recommended.
