Already mentioned in the reviews, but they certainly know how to keep a bloody good ale. To few pubs nowadays can keep a decent ale. Top marks!

Popped in on a non music night and watched sky tv for an hour. Nice modern decor and very clean and tidy. Made to feel very welcome (unlike some of the other pubs) and had a pleasant hour.
