A hidden gem

Inside this pub is fascinating as it's so old. The fireplace is huge and it's got a warm smugglers inn feel to it. The real ales are tasty. It's not on the cheap side. We had a couple of meals and a couple of pints each and it came to £35, but the meals are HUGE! The vegetarian dish was... read more

Nice traditional pub atmosphere. Friendly locals at the bar, good selection of beers and a fantastic open fire. We will visit again.

We weren't sure if we should eat in here as it had the proper "pub" look, We were wrong, the staff were friendly, the food was served quickly and the prices were right! I had the tasty beef and guiness pie, it came with chips, peas and carrots and lots of thick gravy. My husband had curry and chips, he... More

We watched the rugby with a pint and sandwich! Home cooked ham. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Couldn't have picked a better pub to watch Wales play

Guiness is not my thing I guess, but their Ale's of the blond sort were outstanding. I saved by Scotch time for 3pm daily back at the Panorama Hotel with the Owners Da!

True to the reviews, the roast beef (which we both ordered) fell to pieces and was swimming in tasty gravy. I wish there were more potatoes and another... More
