Since the 1990"s when I tripped out on one of these I thought the Holley grail was done.. however tonight I now know the truth.. the best one ever is on the bar at this lovely Roll Town pub. Nice.

Good local pub. Friendly staff. Welcoming pub. Lots of different beers. Could do with a tidy up but aye! They don't charge silly money for a decent pint!

What a great local pub with live bands, food, beer garden, pool and darts. Always welcomed with a smile. Not a modern face less pub but a great old school drinking establishment at the heart of the town..

Top class food, the Sunday dinner is really good, honest English cooking. Real food at honest prices. Served on large round plates you get a real generous sized helping. There is a good range of fine beers also on offer.
