Stopped en route for quick cuppa, which was served in huge and full teacups (never seen teacup and saucer that size before!) - very quirky strange place, but in a very nice way that made us want to stay, or cone back another day. Staff, very nice n friendly WC could do with updating a fair bit, otherwise this would... More

Ive visited this pub a few times over 40 years. The first few times I spoke to the man who created this amazing collection of curiosities. He had a rather interesting daughter with long blonde hair helping at the pub who I noticed. A similar age to myself. Now she is the landlady and running it with her husband. She... More

We visited this pub in early July and it's just a superb place like nowhere else. If you are in the area I recommend a visit. We had a look around as it was quite quiet and then ordered drinks and lunch. Lunch was OK but not great. The pie platter slices were served fridge cold and they were steak... More

My words are inadequate to describe this unique pub. Imagine Pirates of the Caribbean, Tim Burton's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,mix them together, throw in some gothic and art deco influences, mix again, multiply by 10 and you maybe close. This pub is just an experience for all ages - Tutankhamoun, old copper diving helmet, weird and wonderful furniture artefacts and... More

Passed this several times but finally went in on our last night and so glad we did. You will never visit such an interesting pub, if your around you must go in. We were made to feel very welcome by Sally and she made it even more interesting. Full of history and years worth of hoarding but interesting. Didn't eat... More

Sadly the food let it down. We had microwaved pasties. Loved the unusual interior with nooks and crannys. We would like to come back and stay in the hotel, but we would make sure we didn't eat there. .
