I recently visited this pub in order to attend two friends' birthday parties. We were in a private room upstairs and had a buffet so it is difficult to comment fully on the atmosphere of the pub or the menu. However, what I did see when going to the bar to order my drinks was very impressive. There were 4 ales and a large selection of lagers and wines to choose from. The staff also appeared very knowledgeable about the drinks that they stocked and were happy to give recommendations and give you samples. All the ales were served in beer jugs, which was a nice touch. Even though the bar was busy, the staff were very efficient in serving customers quickly. It seemed to be in general a very friendly pub.
Unfortunately I like nowhere near to this pub, if I did I would be very likely to return. I would however recommend a visit to anyone who lives in the area. The function room upstairs was a decent size and makes a good party venue.
If you are planning to visit take a look at their website. There is a voucher to get a free drink!
