Great place for a drink especially when wife is out shopping. Its in the heart of the town and you can see the bull ring while sitting inside or enjoying your drink outside in the sunny south east. Friendly staff.

So named because the original proprietor was also the local undertaker. Try to go on a night when there is live music, especially when Martin Jackman is singing and playing guitar. Very good Guinness.

This was a fantastic authentic pub until a couple of years ago. Modernisation has ruined it
