This is a lovely pub, with a warm, welcoming, friendly & inclusive atmosphere. It's a real home from home with friendly staff & clientele. Robin takes great care in attention to detail, from the decor, right down to the glasses you drink from. I was sad to leave such a welcoming pub & this will definitely be on my return... More

We were down for the weekend celebrating our wedding anniversary and popped into this little gem. Derek was so welcoming and made us feel right at home, after a few we ended getting to know a lot of the locals who were equally as welcoming! I have never been so sad to see the night end! Robin was so lovely... More

Had a few drinks in this bar. Robin was behind the bar and great company. Would visit this bar again just for the comfort and service.

Visited last week with relatives, still a great pub and nicely decorated. It was relatively quiet but good music and a good atmosphere. According to the posters lots going on and we were given a warm welcome and there was a good choice of drinks.

This bar is a good halfway stop between my hotel and town - very welcome on the return trudge up the hill. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the clientele were also very welcoming. If you go in alone, someone will always speak to you. There is a good selection of drinks and this is the first bar... More

This bar was halfway up the hill from the town to our b&b so was a good stopping off place on the way back after our evening meal, yes it's mostly gay but you are not made to feel out of place and the decor is smart and relaxing
