It's like stepping back in time in this bar. The decor must be 30 yrs old. However good atmosphere,great friendly bar staff. Manager a little reserved.

I have lost count how many times I have been to this pub over the years. I have always enjoyed the local friendly atmosphere but I have to say the current landlord is the most miserable that I have ever encountered in any pub. He...More

This is a traditional pub set in a residential area, on a main road. Lots of car parking if you need it. Selection of real ales. Clean toilets. Good local pub.
