Business Trip, staying at nearby Premier Inn. Went in for a few beers. It has good real ale. Watched the Liverpool V Chelsea game. The natives were friendly but they couldn't fathom what a Scouser was ding in there,

This popular pub is a good meeting place and offers a traditional venue for a pint or for a group wanting to meet. The menu is pub fare but reasonably priced and well prepared.

Absolutely disgusting food, served cold. Manager argued with me, refused to rectify my food. Was unhygienic and disgusting over all
