A proper 'local' type pub with real drinkers and real guest ales. But don't be put off by this, the food is not pub grub, it was tasty, fresh and cooked perfectly. My husband had the peppered mushroom pot for his starter (he struggled to resist licking the pot!) and I had the chicken liver pate which was served in an individual pot with fresh salad and toasted ciabatta, it was very nice. Mains; husband had the cheese and onion pie which apparently gave my home-made pie some competition (grrr) and I had the chicken and chorizo tagliatelle which was also nice (maybe a little bland). We also had a side of beer battered onion rings which were fresh and crisp and not greasy. + we had 1 pint of Bombshell bitter and a diet coke, altogether it came to £28 which I think was incredibly inexpensive.
The service may be considered a little slow but, to be honest, I don't mind waiting as it tells me that it is being freshly cooked and not just heated up. The staff were also friendly and welcoming.
